What is a CHW? A community health worker (CHW) is a member of the community in which they serve.
They provide basic health and prevention care. They are able to help advocate for the clients needs and translate medical jargon. They also help to find much needed resources for their clients. Our CHW’s currently serve people with COPD, Pneumonia or Health Failure that have been hospitalized. We provide services after the patient is discharged to help keep them from being readmitted so that they can increase their quality of life.
