Partners In Caring Princeton

Partners In Caring Princeton (PIC) helps people age in place in the community.  PSRC's Partners in Caring program provides integrated, client-centered coordination to residents 55+ in the Greater Princeton area to increase resiliency, reduce risk, and support independence, dignity and self-determination. 

Through PIC you will receive the ongoing support of a Care Coordinator who will be your primary contact person.  The care coordinator will partner with you and your family to identify strengths as well as areas where support would be helpful.   An assessment and care plan help you connect to local resources that will support your plan to remain at home.  The Care Coordinator stays in touch to make adjustments to the plan as your needs change and to be available to you as your first point of contact.  

PIC Services include:

  • Information and linkage to community resources and services
  • Professional assessment and action plan
  • Individual and/or family consultations
  • Ongoing support by phone, home or office visit
  • Family caregiver support
  • Advocacy
  • Coordination of care from multiple providers
  • Assistance with benefit applications
  • Education
  • Volunteer visitors
  • Wellness and peer support groups
  • Volunteer opportunities
  • Linkage to other PSRC programs

Through our community partners your care coordinator will connect you with:

  • Emergency Preparedness-tools and information
  • Home Delivered Meals and Kosher home delivered meals five days a week, one or two meals per day.
  • Home care and companions
  • Home Modifications to make your home safer and more accessible
  • Nursing assessments and follow-up, such as medication set-up
  • Transportation-door to door transportation for medical appointments and other activities.

In addition, we have an extensive linkage network to other services to address identified needs.

There are  fees for some of these services.

"You only go through the experience of caring for elderly parents once, so
it is impossible to be prepared for everything that is going to hit you, sometimes
all at once. The social worker assigned to our family and her team at PSRC
gave us, along with so much important practical information and real help, hope
and understanding and the sense that we were not alone. Everything would
have been so much more difficult for us and our mother’s quality of life would
have suffered without the help we were given.” 


“We have never been made to feel embarrassed at not knowing enough,
never been made to feel poor, or on the other hand, entitled…They provided
reliable solutions to practical problems including helping her maintain a
modicum of companionship. Arranging for meals on wheels and library visits,
visiting her in the hospital and inviting her to the movies at PSRC all these
helped my sister, who has lived alone most of her life, stay integrated into her
community. As the only nearby sibling, I couldn’t have managed without the
substantive, constant and positive support of PSRC.”
