There is a coordinated plan of care that includes medical, social and daily living support. At LIFE Pittsburgh, older adults are treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. They receive the very best care from dedicated geriatric care professionals without sacrificing their independence. Primary care and community services are provided through the Day Health Center and through the in-home program based on an individual’s needs. The continuous coordination of care sets the LIFE program apart from any other care model, which ensures quality of life to its Participants.
