Service Coordinators

The Keys to Healthy Aging

At each Fellowship House, we have an onsite service coordinator who works with residents to navigate Medicare, Medicaid and other benefits to which residents are entitled. The Service Coordinator (SC) serves as a linchpin between community resources and residents. The SC’s job is to help motivate residents to maintain healthy, active lifestyles and to empower them to become more self-sufficient and maintain control of the decisions that affect them. The Service Coordinator is an integral part of the Fellowship Square team and not only works closely with the residents but gets to know the family members as well, keeping them informed and engaged in their loved ones’ care.

Our goal is to provide opportunities for residents to participate in things they enjoy and discover new passions.
