AccessHealth Spartanburg's care navigators aren't just knowledgeable about the local health care landscape. They are perhaps the most comprehensive experts on the full range of social services, programs and resources in the community. Collectively, the team at AccessHealth Spartanburg has built a network of partnerships and trusted relationships with dozens of organizations in Spartanburg County that provide assistance to people in need.
From housing assistance and SNAP (food stamps) to job/training programs and legal assistance, AccessHealth Spartanburg care navigators know not only what is available, but the rules, regulations, requirements and procedures for each program. After completing a needs assessment, care navigators spend time getting to know each client and helps direct them to the programs and assistance that they need. This includes:
In many of these cases, there are multiple options and programs. AHS care navigators have a deep understanding of how each are different and which will best serve each client's unique needs. This ensures each person gets the help they need more efficiently, while increasing their ability to manage their health and improve their lives.
