Health Care

ARISE can help someone who wants to move out of a nursing home or avoid entering a nursing home to find the health care and home services they need to live in the community. Our health care advocates help locate housing and other services for independent living, including: 

  • finding a doctor or specialist, including those who accept Medicaid or other health insurance plans 
  • locating doctors or specialists who offer accessible exam and diagnostic equipment 
  • helping you become a better self-advocate with information about your health care rights 
  • helping when a health care provider denies your request for a sign language interpreter or other interpreter services 
  • providing referrals to other services that help with living at home, such as: 
  • home access modifications 
  • durable medical equipment 
  • service coordination 
  • home support services (home care/personal care, housekeeping, Meals on Wheels) 
  • transportation 

ARISE also provides advocacy and information about making medical facilities more accessible to everyone.
