Health—General & Rehabilitative

SENIOR PHARMASSIST INC

Durham, NC

Mission

Senior PharmAssist (SPA) promotes healthier living for Durham seniors by helping them obtain and better manage needed medications, and by providing health education, Medicare insurance counseling, community referral and advocacy.

Our mission and unique program model are grounded in what we believe:
• Seniors enrich our community and should be healthy, independent and empowered
• Collaboration among healthcare professionals leads to better outcomes for older adults and more efficient care
• Educating Medicare beneficiaries about their medicines and healthcare options makes them better advocates for their own health and can prevent financial ruin
• Helping seniors access other valuable resources, such as Medicare subsidies and in-home aide services, can dramatically improve their lives
