    What is a Health Home?

A Health Home Care Coordinator is expected to help coordinate not just medical, mental health and substance abuse services, but the social service needs of the individual as well.

    How can a Health Home help me?

    A Health Home is about improving not just your physical health, but your mental and social health as well. TRC’s Health Home assists you to:

    • Get involved in activities to improve your health
    • Obtain housing, legal assistance, food and other essential needs
    • Learn more about meaningful social and community activities to include in your life

    Health Homes has helped me go from being homeless to permanent housing and I am very happy to be where I am.” – Eric L, Successful client

    How is it different from other Care Management?

    TRC’s Health Home Care Coordinators are trained to consider all of your needs: the needs of the whole person. Therefore, you receive support in areas you may not have had assistance with before including housing, legal and becoming involved in social or community activities. The help you receive is driven by your goals and the needs you identify in meeting those needs.

    What are the people that I would be working with like?

    TRC’s Health Home Care Coordinator Team are caring individuals who talk with you about your goals, your needs and what will make your life meaningful. They also know where to go and who to talk with in order to make sure these needs are met as quickly as possible and you have the supports needed for recovery.

    Who do I speak with if I have questions or want to sign up?

    If you would like to speak to someone directly about The Resource Center’s Health Home Care Coordination service, please call 716.000.0000.

    Health Homes has been a great ladder back to living, helping me get back on track in life, one step at a time.” – Robert D, Successful client

    What happens to my primary care physician and counselor?

The Care Plan explains the work being done by TRC’s Health Home team to support your goals. Every person involved in your Care Plan works together to make sure your well being is a top priority.

    Children's Health Homes

    What is a Children’s Health Home?

    A Children’s Health Home is a care management service model where ALL of a child’s caregivers communicate with one another so that a family’s needs are addressed appropriately. The Resource Center will provide a care manager to eligible families, children and youth to provide access to services assuring they have everything necessary to stay healthy, out of the emergency room and out of the hospital. The Care Manager supports services that a family may already be receiving and will help families get new ones if necessary.

    Who is eligible to enroll?

    Children from birth to age 21 must be enrolled in Medicaid and have two or more chronic health conditions OR one single qualifying condition:

    • Could benefit from this level of care management
    • HIV/AIDS

    • Comprehensive Care Management
    • Care Coordination and Health Promotion
    • Comprehensive Transitional Care
    • Individual and Family Support
    • Referral to Community and Social Support Services

    Why would I want to enroll my child in a Health Home?

    At The Resource Center, we understand caring for your child can be a complicated and often exhausting experience. In response to the needs of the families we serve, we are proud to have joined together with the Children’s Health Home of Upstate New York (CHHUNY) to provide Care Management Services that put your family first.

    Key Point of Contact

    We understand families spend countless hours being transferred from department to department trying to get critical answers and information regarding your child’s services. When you enroll in a Health Home, your Care Manager becomes your key point of contact in managing the services for your child.

    Service Coordination

    Critical to a healthy child is ensuring each service provider works together and always in the best interest of the child. A family’s Care Manager will have access to information on each service their child is receiving, enabling them to stay in constant communication and eliminating redundancy of service. The vast network also provides linkages to related services such as Adult Health Homes and many more.

    Compassion

    The Care Manager is an independent position that works for you. Following the CHHUNY model of care, this position strives to learn about the unique needs of each family and work with them to make the most appropriate decisions for the family.

    Advantages of the CHHUNY Network

    Families have the choice to select from a number of approved Children’s Health Homes authorized by the New York State Department of Health. The CHHUNY network, of which The Resource Center is a member, is New York State’s largest and serves 54 of the 61 counties in New York State. This large network not only gives families access to the largest list of providers and care managers, but the services can travel with you.
