Bridging Older Adult Care Program

The Spectrum Health Bridging Older Adult Care Program (Back Up) uses house calls to bring medical services to you as you transition from your hospital stay back to your home. An advanced practice provider and a dedicated care team will work with you to coordinate your care based on your specific needs and help you transition back to your primary care physician or an alternate level of care when medically appropriate.

How it works

You’ll start your experience in the program with a face-to-face meeting with one of our care team members. Together, you’ll review the program details and go over any questions you have.

Each person enrolled in the program is assigned to an advanced practice professional and physician as their provider team. You should expect to see your provider team every one to two weeks, or as you decide together with them. In addition, you may see other members of your care team for lab work, care management or social work.

Depending on your specific needs, the program can last from about one to four months. When you’re medically ready to return to your primary care provider or alternative level of care, your care team will be there to support you every step of the way in your transition.
