Fear, confusion and finances often conspire to have us seek medical help at the the wrong time -- too late. FaithHealthNC partners help us learn about education and preventive care, and how to recognize symptoms and issues so we seek help earlier, with a supportive team behind us.
Without support, we frequently wind up in crisis mode, unable to anticipate what providers need from us or so anxious that we can't be treated. FaithhealthNC partners help prepare us when we need medical help, from bringing medications to a facility to a understanding financial options to being a calming presence
Too often, we wind up at the health system's wrong door -- the Emergency Room. FaithHealthNC partners help us to learn more about ourselves and the care we need, from preventive steps to proper medications. In that way, they help us find the right door, such as seeing a primary care doctor or other provider.
Congregational volunteers, health care providers and community organizations are joining together in an important task. They are helping their members and neighbors along their health journey-- before they go to a hospital, while they are being cared for and after they are back on their own or in a post-hospital setting.
FaithHealth is dynamic partnership between faith communities, health systems and other providers focused on improving health.
