I received a call from a medical facility that serves low-income patients who have suffered a major health crisis.
The facility had a patient, Dave, who was due to be discharged in 1 week, but was unable to return home because living alone was no longer a safe option. He had no family and nowhere else to go.
I met with Dave, and after speaking to him determined ALTCS (Arizona Long Term Care System) would be his best option. I became Dave’s advocate and assisted him in filling out the application, providing all of the required documentation, and submitting the package to the state.
As a result, Dave was discharged directly from the facility to a group home where he receives the help he desperately needs. Malea’s Mission was founded to help seniors like Dave.
