Yale University Department of Emergency Medicine is assisting seniors and others with impaired mobility through a program known as PRIDE.
PRIDE is a community-centered intervention program designed to enhance your ability to live safely and independently in your own homes by reducing your fall risks.
Once you enroll, a PRIDE Team Member will visit you at home to gather data related to your recent health, fall risks, medication usage, and will conduct a safety check of your home. At the end of the visit they will coordinate a home visit by one of our PRIDE Visiting Nurses.
The Visiting Nurse conducts a health assessment, assesses your needs and eligibility for services, explains available community resources and how to access them, and arranges for an appointment and (if necessary) transportation, for you to visit your primary care physician.
PRIDE is a Free, Fast, and Easy way to increase your chances of safely remaining in your home.
