Community Care Upstate – PRISMA Health

What is the Community Care Program?
The Community Care Program consists of a group of volunteers who work together to provide practical, emotional and spiritual support to patients in the community. They assist patients who need basic assistance in their homes. The scope of this program is to meet non-medical needs. A team's activities may include transportation to a doctor's appointment or grocery store, household or yard chores, errands, meals, social outings, visits, phone calls, prayers, relief for primary caregivers, etc.

Population Served:
Vulnerable patients discharged from Greenville Memorial Hospital identified as high-risk for re-admission and/or two or more of the following criteria:
  • The patient is chronically ill.
  • The patient is uninsured or underinsured.
  • The patient is not homebound but requires additional assistance.

Volunteer Teams:
A team can consist of any number of members – typically 2 to 20. Each team has a Team Captain who will be the point of contact for team members and coordinate the team's schedule. The Program Staff will provide team members with training and ongoing support. Volunteers will choose how many hours they serve each month and designate the skills they have to offer for the discharged patient.
