Health & Wellness

Arc participant meets with his health advocate.

People with developmental disabilities often have difficulty accessing and understanding proper treatment due to intellectual or cognitive impairments.

Arc SF Health & Wellness staff support at-risk participants with services including health care navigation, regular monitoring, screenings, and fitness education. Assuring continuity of care for our participants is a priority for us. Health case management, part-time nurses, and healthy living classes are all part of our community-based case management services.  

Health Advocacy includes support with: 

  • Understanding health plan costs and coverage 
  • Doctor-patient communicayion 
  • Providing health history 
  • Getting timely screenings 
  • Following treatment plans 
  • Getting proper primary, vision, dental, and podiatric care
