GRANTS PASS, Ore., Sept. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Team Senior Referral Services, Inc.™ (Team Senior™ – https://www.teamsenior.org/) announced it had expanded its scope of practice to help seniors recently displaced by historic wildfires that have burned more than one million acres across the state. As families evacuate fire-ravaged areas with little relief in sight, it becomes critically important that vulnerable populations like the elderly receive the help they need. Located in the Rogue Valley, Team Senior™ is a local company. With 100% free services, Team Senior™ is already adept at working with the private-pay sector, but has recently begun helping Medicaid patients as well.
“Seniors are being displaced all over Southern Oregon right now due to the wildfires, and we’re here to help them. We have industry associates all over the country, and our phones are well-staffed. We’re here to help answer all of those hard questions being asked right now,” said Jamie Callahan, Founder and CEO of Team Senior™. “One of the most important qualities that sets us apart from other referral services is that we have always tried to physically meet each of our clients. We want to get to know who we’re helping. And that personal connection lets our clients and their families see that we really care about them as people – because we do. This is our passion. We get seniors the services they need, so they can go back to the joy of living their normal lives. And that’s more important now than ever.”
Team Senior™ directs seniors to available resources, whether that be housing, information about caregivers, home health referrals, assisting with transportation needs, medication management, and much more. Team Senior™ works with a wide variety of partner facilities and organizations, matching clients based on each individual’s needs and wants. “Most recently, we have been aiding in the delivery of groceries, finding missing pets, and helping to replace beds,” says Vicky Norman, Intake Coordinator for Team Senior.
“An extremely important part of the placement and referral process includes our initial, comprehensive consultation. Getting to know each of our clients on a personal and individual basis is a critical priority for us,” said Jamie Callahan. “I learned this lesson years ago from a wise DHS supervisor who really opened my eyes to the gamut of living situations out there as well as the importance of visiting every option in person. Just because a facility is opulently furnished, or has lavish living benefits, doesn’t necessarily mean that it is the best option for everyone. It’s crucial that we speak directly, in-person and preferably visit their home. We want to match seniors with living situations that make them happy and feel familiar.”
