Providing care after the hospital.
If you have a chronic health condition, it can be harder to recover after leaving the hospital. The HCMC Care Navigator is dedicated to helping you make that transition back home through patient follow-up phone calls and serving as a liaison between you, your provider, and healthcare team.
Can’t afford your pharmaceuticals? We can help.
GrowWell works with your local healthcare provider and pharmaceutical companies to provide your medications at a reduced cost or possibly no cost.
Chronic disease care for adults.
GrowWell provides coordination of health services and health education to improve the health of adults with chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure or stroke.
Our goal at GrowWell is to better the quality of life for West Tennesseans through better disease management and prevention. We provide health education and resources to 20 counties in rural West Tennessee. This mission is accomplished through community programs that provide prevention, detection, and management education for chronic diseases and related factors, specifically obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Most chronic conditions are preventable through small, manageable lifestyle changes - specifically diet and exercise. Through education and outreach, GrowWell helps to provide resources to community members to help them get and stay healthy to prevent chronic conditions.
Sometimes chronic conditions occur, but that doesn't mean that we can't still make the most of it. Through self-management, community members can learn best practices and key strategies to live their life and manage their conditions in the best way possible. Self-management classes and one-on-one education are provided throughout the 20 rural West TN counties.
Many chronic conditions often do not have any symptoms until the condition has reached a severe level, limiting treatment options and reducing good outcomes. Through early detection, these conditions can be better managed and possibly reversed. GrowWell has many community screenings and events throughout rural West TN to provide opportunities for early disease detection and instruction for the management of those diseases.
