Ben Wortham, Health Guardians Program Director, and Zachary Schnitzer, Patient Navigator, were recently guests on the New Orleans Council on Aging’s Senior Profile show. The pair discussed how Health Guardians helps vulnerable populations create and navigate a comprehensive health care plan that best meets their physical, mental and social needs.
Health Guardians is an intensive and integrated care model that strives to remove and address any and all barriers (social, economic and health-related) to receiving effective health care. It is an integrated system of intensive medical and behavioral care navigation. It incorporates the many health and social services provided by Catholic Charities and its partner organizations to help these patients achieve a better quality of life.
