Health care professionals often are concerned about discharging elderly patients from the hospital without being certain they will receive the proper assistance once they get home. Caregivers and family members can be just as concerned.

If you or someone you know has experienced this apprehension, or if you have a loved one scheduled for a hospital admission in the near future, please visit the ACTIVATE Community Resource Room at St. Joseph’s Hospital for assistance. The hospital concierge desk (located inside the main entrance of the hospital) can direct you to the ACTIVATE room. They can also be reached by phone at (602) 406-2374.

The ACTIVATE Community Resource Room can offer assistance with the following:

  • Behavioral and Mental Health Resources

  • Community Resources
  • Food, Clothing, and Medical
  • Equipment
  • Government Subsidized Care
  • Housing Options
