NHE places service coordinators in specialized communities for elderly and for people with disabilities across the nation.
What is a Service Coordinator?
A Service Coordinator is responsible for assuring that elderly residents, especially those who are frail or at risk, and those non-elderly residents with disabilities are linked to the supportive services they need to continue living independently in their current homes. A few essential activities of a service coordinator are:
- Conduct general intake and assessment and identify service needs (Individual, Activity of Daily Living, Community)
- Link to service needs/resources (Traditional, Community Based and Other)
- Monitor service provision/follow-up
- Coordinate educational and wellness programs
- Service Coordination Management and Supervision
- Quality Assurance

- Grant Writing
- Training and Education

“EMPOWERMENT. Residents are proud to inform us that they feel that they can handle certain situations in their daily routine with minimum assistance from their Service Coordinators. It makes my day to assist and, most of all, continue to empower the residents to be independent.”
-Brenda Jones, Service Coordinator, Elevation Management
“This program has given management a more positive outlook on what we do as service coordinators. It has allowed us to work as a team, which in turn benefits all our residents. We all work well together, and are very supportive of each other. It feels more like family.”
-Lee Hill, Service Coordinator, SDMC Management
“The NHE Service Coordination program has provided more positive energy to our property. Our residents are happier, and the stress level has decreased significantly because we are here to assist them with their needs…We are change agents. We make things happen! Our residents love us and we love them.
-Jacqueline Baskin, Service Coordinator, Episcopal Housing Management
“Overall Quality of life has improved. Residents have been connected to resources they never knew existed. Residents constantly share their gratitude and praise for a wonderful program that has assisted in quality of life and has allowed participants to age in place … Small gestures can create big change. Working for a company that cares for its employees helps employees move that positive energy forward.”
-Viet Nam Nguyen, Service Coordinator, Quantum Management
“Our Service Coordinator from NHE Inc. is able to work with our residents to help ensure they have all the resources and support needed in order to remain living independently for as long as possible. Our turnover rate would be higher without the Service Coordinator program through NHE Inc. in place.
“The impact the NHE Inc. Service Coordinator Program has on our residents is significant. Without the support provided by the NHE Service Coordinator Program, my time spent focusing on property business would be reduced greatly. Property Managers who have a Service Coordinator program through NHE Inc. are truly fortunate.”
