As a care coordinator, I teach members how diet, activity, and exercise all impact their health. I can even develop a personalized plan of care, tailored just for them.” –Robin Varacalle, care coordinator for Erickson Advantage at Charlestown

Sometimes, additional attention and a higher level of coordinated care may help you lead a more comfortable life. If you ever need a higher level of care, Erickson Advantage may be able to cover your skilled nursing needs without a prior three-day hospital stay.

All of this is delivered by Erickson Living doctors and nurses with specific expertise in assessing individual health care goals.
