Aging's Evidence-based Intervention Plans are working
The Cattaraugus County Department of Aging has a news article about using six distinct evidence-based programs in its work with older adults and their families.
"I really believe in these [EBI programs]. We have seen them drastically change a person's life for the better," said County Office for the Aging Director Catherine Mackay.
County Department of the Aging case manager, Ellen Herner, is lead case manager for a number of the county's EBI programs, and uses four model programs in her practice, said Mackay.
Described by Mackay as "…a perfect fit for the one-on-one programs," Herner leads the county's PEARLS (Program to Encourage Active, Rewarding Lives for Seniors), Powerful Tools for Caregivers, and Hoarding programs and is the primary coach for the Care Transitions program.
