What is Health Coordination?

Coordinating the health of seniors involves more than managing medications or annual doctor visits. Our health includes physical, social and mental aspects.  KayBee.Us partners with seniors, caregivers, families, and guardians to coordinate the growing number of resources needed to support a senior's health and happiness.

Physical

Physical health involves a senior's nutrition, sleep, physical activity, weight, illnesses of the body, and home environment. Medical providers focus on physical health with office visits, procedures, and medications.  Social services and community-based organization may aid seniors with nutrition and home environment. The focus of physical health is keeping a senior's body capable of independent living and reducing pain.

What does KayBee.Us do?

From initial home visits, our nurses learn about current resources seniors rely on for living independently. Identifying caregivers and support networks, medical providers, and social services, We look at the big picture of a senior's physical health to create a plan for staying safely independent.  Attending medical appointments with seniors, coordinating meal and grocery delivery, finding solutions for medication management, and coordinating home maintenance & repairs are a few examples how KayBee.Us has partnered with seniors and caregivers to meet physical health needs.

Social

Social wellness refers to our ability to interact with our community and our sense of belonging from a defined role we play in our communities, families, and peer groups.  The physical aspects of aging take a toll on social health when the task of driving or leaving home is intimidating.  Seniors also experience changes in their role with family members and spouses as illnesses affect their physical and mental health.  

What does KayBee.Us do?

KayBee.Us brings the community to the senior in a meaningful way. Regular home visits allow seniors to talk out loud about these changing roles.  Our nurses listen to seniors speak about their life work, hobbies, passions, likes, and dislikes, which helps us connect seniors to social resources.  As a Lyft Concierge business, caregivers and seniors are a phone call away to transportation solutions.  We value keeping seniors active and social.

Mental

Mental health deals with how we think, feel and cope with changes in life.  Mental health also refers to our capacity to learn and engage with others.  Aging affects each brain differently.  Diseases of the brain impact seniors and their families in every community.

What does KayBee.Us do?

As the medical community learns more about the aging brain, our mission for supporting seniors' mental health is connecting them to their communities as much as possible. By having conversations with our seniors about their changing roles or medical care, we can help create solutions that focus on connecting them with their communities and relieving stress that can negatively affect physical or social health.


 

What does KayBee.Us not do?

KayBee.Us does not provide skilled, non-medical or respite hands-on care.  Through community connections, we have the expertise to connect seniors to such resources. Our vision is to provide accessible health coordination for every senior.  Health coordination is taking a big picture view of health and connecting resources to surround and support seniors and caregivers in the community.  If you have any questions, please contact KayBee.Us.
