PrimeLife Enrichment, a senior services organization serving Hamilton County, is looking to hire a Community Outreach Coordinator, who will be responsible for managing client service programs and networking with referral sources. Outreach, case management, facilitation of support groups, public education and community engagement are important elements to this position.
 
Organization Overview

Mission:  PrimeLife Enrichment provides programs and services that promote independence, optimal wellness, and socialization for those aged 50 and beyond. 

PrimeLife Enrichment provides a continuum of care for individuals aged 50 and older at all stages from frail to strong.  Though our minimal goal is to help maintain the current level of functioning, agency services often generate significant improvements in living conditions and personal circumstances, including improved mental and physical health.  It is our experience that some degree of personal growth and enjoyment are possible at any age, regardless of circumstance.  Programs and services provided are:
• Information and Referral: PrimeLife is the primary information hub for area seniors.
• Transportation: Reliable drivers transport seniors to important destinations – medical appointments, volunteer activities, beauty or barber shops, senior centers, grocery, bank, or place of employment – in vehicles that accommodate wheelchairs, if needed.
• Community Outreach: Seniors receive one-on-one help to obtain vital services such as energy assistance, housing, or medical attention, and emergency intervention in crisis situations.
•         Senior Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP): Volunteer counselors, trained by the Indiana Department of Insurance, help evaluate policies and file claims.
•         Caregiver & Bereavement Support:  Group meetings and individual support, including caregiver respite and education.
•         Assistance to the Homebound: Trained volunteers offer support, companionship and assistance to those who are alone or in need of help.
• Respite and Attendant Care: In-Home aides provide relief for the full-time caregiver. Non-medical assistance is also provided to those who live alone, but need help with activities of daily living.
• PrimeLife Enrichment Center: Featuring an indoor pool and walking track, and focusing on wellness, lifelong learning, and peer interaction, the Center offers exercise programs, dancing, computer instruction, art and other classes, games and social events, seminars, health screenings, and more for seniors in Hamilton and contiguous counties.

Most services are provided to Hamilton County residents aged 50 and older, though activity center membership is available for out-of-county residents, and adults under age 50 may participate in fitness activities and classes. While Hamilton County has a rapidly growing affluent population, it's important to recognize that our initiatives reach seniors representing all socio-economic strata. Approximately one third of our clients live at or below 150% of the federal poverty level and need base assistance and advocacy.  Agency services help seniors live in their chosen environment longer, prevent premature or unnecessary institutional placement, and minimize the depression that results from loss and isolation.  Our programs – especially the effective, structured program of educational, fitness and social activities offered at the senior activity center – are designed to address Hypokinetic Syndrome – the cycle of reduced activity followed by decreased strength and flexibility and increasingly sedentary lifestyle (often exacerbated by social isolation) that is common among older adults.   Additionally, in our highly mobile community, many elders have moved here to live near children. As this transition is most likely to occur after the death of a spouse, these individuals particularly need our Center to help them integrate into their new community and find friends and interests of their own.  This program, along with our transportation service, helps keep them independently active, while addressing their grief and alienation.
