Primary Care Liaisons
Each PCL connects with clinics monthly and presents information about AAA resources, including evidence-based health-promotion programs serving older adults and their family caregivers (e.g., Enhance®Fitness, Powerful Tools for Caregivers) as well as self-management “flags,” a useful client engagement tool. Our PCLs are building bridges between community and primary care so that every older adult and family caregiver find the support they need to remain in their own home and community.
