Ramona E. at Mon Valley
The day I was accepted into Community LIFE I was diagnosed with cancer. And when they called me to start the program, I told them that they might not want me because of my diagnosis. They said, “What’s that have to do with anything?” That was nice to hear.

Meet Your Team

The specialists that specialize in you.

Nurses

Our team of nurses is able to provide breathing treatments, IV medication, wound care, vaccinations, home visits and medication counseling and management. There’s always a nurse on call 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.

Therapists

Certified Physical and Occupational therpaists meet with you to design a care plan that can include skilled therapy services. They will help you with building strength, after an injury and with maintaining your level of independence. You will also have access to wellness programming and services.

Dieticians

Our registered Dieticians will meet with you to discuss your individual dietary needs. They can recommend a menu that includes supplements and that can meet the needs of folks with diabetes, heart conditions, and more.

Social Workers

The social workers are advocates for you. They can assist with applications for benefits and can coordinate additional resources to meet all of your needs; in the center and in the community.

Physicians

As a member of the interdisciplinary team, our physicians get to know you on a personal level. They manage your medical care and help you make decisions to stay healthy and independent in the community.

Transportation

Our transportation will take you to and from the center each day and to all of your outside medical appointments. Our Chair-to-chair service means our drivers will meet you in your home, help you with your coat, and wait for you until your appointment is over.

Community LIFE saved my life.

Josephine N. at Homestead
Before I joined Community LIFE, I had serious pain in my chest. I couldn’t go to the doctor or the hospital because I didn’t have the copay. But earlier, I had applied to Community LIFE. Right in time, they came to me and told me that I was accepted into the program. Not long after that, I had an infected aortic aneurysm. If I wouldn’t have gone to the doctor, I would’ve been dead. I’m so glad they stepped in.
Your Medical Team

At Community LIFE, your doctor is on-site – no appointments are necessary. Plus, if needed, we’ll coordinate outside specialist appointments and provide transportation. Our ability to coordinate care ensures that participants receive all the information necessary to make informed, timely medical decisions.
