Fort Worth Star-Telegram: Vega Place – House Calls Help Seniors Stay Healthy

Medical house calls are a rarity, particularly at Vega Place Senior Apartments, where most of the residents are on Medicare.

That is changing, however, and it could be catching on elsewhere.

Through a new program, partially supported by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, doctors and nurse practitioners are visiting many of the 109 residents at Vega Place, a government-subsidized apartment complex for senior citizens and people disabilities.

It’s called the House Call program, said Ja’net Huling, who dreamed up the idea, which has received a three-year $176,000 HUD grant.

Huling said the goal is to help people “to age in place longer and better.”
