Senior Care Network: Celebrating 40 years of service to our community
May 15 2024

Senior Care Network (SCN), founded in 1984, is celebrating 40 years of service to the San Gabriel Valley! Located on the Huntington Hospital campus, SCN is one of the few hospital-based programs in the country meeting the diverse needs of older adults, adults with disabilities and their families. SCN’s team includes social workers and public health nurses, as well as volunteers and students. To address social determinants of health, SCN also partners with physicians, mental health and community-based providers, and health plans. Together, the organization serves more than 15,000 community members annually with the ultimate goal of helping people age well and live safely in their homes. 

SCN assists in many ways, including supporting family caregivers, locating and arranging needed services, and giving advice about aging concerns. The organization has established itself locally and nationally to positively impact the health and well-being of adults in our community throughout the care continuum.

Senior Care Network is funded by a combination of public programs, community donations, and proceeds from Huntington Collection resale shop, enabling them to offer these free programs and support services:

  • 50+ Health Connection newsletter.
  • Assisted Living Waiver Program (ALW).
  • Caregiver support.
  • Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP).
  • A call-in community resource center with expert staff.
  • The Senior CareLine, a free telephone service to help seniors stay socially connected.
  • Support for all socioeconomic levels: Medicare, Medi-Cal, dual-eligible, homeless, middle-income and wealthy.
  • Support for language needs.

“We are so proud to celebrate 40 years of serving our community,” said Eileen Koons, MSW, ACSW, director, Senior Care Network. “Our dedicated team works closely with individuals and families every day, personally answering questions to help them navigate through the health-related challenges of aging. This personalized approach has supported thousands of older adults and people with disabilities to live safely and continue to thrive in the community.”
