The purpose

Saint Luke Home (SLH) is a home for low-income seniors who are ≥ 55 years and in need of basic living help in Tucson, Arizona. Reports shows that emergency calls are made from SLH (64 residents) around 60 times each year with emergency department (ED) visits and hospital admissions that follow. In 2014, a total of 70 calls were made, and in 2015, 49 calls. The Director, who is a nurse by training, and staff report that many of these calls are related to medications and may be avoidable. Therefore, we believe we can make a difference and decrease emergency calls, ED visits and hospitalizations that can be avoided with a program to teach the elders and staff at SLH. The program is called Preventing Avoidable Admissions Among Assisted Living Elders (PA4LE) and will consist of a 2-hour session every two weeks including home or clinic visits (elder preference), educational sessions, and staff training.
