LIFE Pittsburgh is a community-based alternative to nursing home care. We assist older adults in maintaining quality, dignity and autonomy in their lives by supporting the family unit within the context of a holistic and faith-based approach to medical and social services. LIFE Pittsburgh provides guidance for older adults who wish to remain in their own home, but who have health problems that prohibit their ability to safely do so. Traditional and non-traditional services are combined to support the individual and encourage an independent lifestyle. Services are provided on an individual basis to tailor a flexible, yet comprehensive, medical and supportive plan of care. Through the LIFE Pittsburgh program, frail and fragile seniors can remain in their own homes and receive a coordinated plan of care that enables them to maintain their independence and enjoy a safe and active life in the community.
