Primary Care Liaisons


PCL Silo Graphic
The Primary Care Liaison (PCL) role offers is a unique opportunity to bridge the healthcare and Area Agency on Aging (AAAs) environments, both of which have two professional environments that have their own sets of norms, values, and areas of focus areas. The healthcare environment is focused on providing excellent care to patients while also minimizing financial losses. While the Area Agency on Aging (AAAA)s environment are focused on achieving a balance between maintaining a high level of service that has been offered historically while also seeking innovative ways to reach potential clients in a rapidly changing landscape. The PCL was created to bridge the gap between primary care practices and the provision of community-based resources accessible through AAAs.
