Senior Outreach and Engagement Program
Wheeler Clinic’s Senior Outreach and Engagement Program (SOEP) provides outreach, education, assessment, case management, and referral services for older adults (age 55+) living in the North Central Connecticut cities and towns within DMHAS Region 4. The program serves older adults who are isolated and have mental health and/or substance use concerns.
A full-time SOEP case manager helps individuals identify their strengths and needs, and provides linkage to available supports and treatment services. The goal is to help safely maintain individuals in their homes and communities.
- The program case manager initially meets with individuals once per week in person
- Frequency of visits may decrease as individuals stablize
- A case manager is available for telephone check-ins between in-person visits.
- The program serves individuals for average length of one to six months.
