Health TAPESTRY brings together people, communities and health care teams. In this program, trained volunteers visit people where they live. During these visits, volunteers learn about what matters most to that person and about their health and life goals.
This information is passed on from clients to volunteers and then sent to the client’s primary health care team using special technology. This information helps the inter-professional team learn more about how they can help that person stay healthy longer. The health care team also connects with community organizations to help the person access activities and resources in their community.
