Dr. Hocog to make personal home visits to Saipan Seniors

I was in the CNMI Medicaid office recently and saw Dr. Hocog's notice on the counter that he has opened an office behind the CUC Dandan. In addition to his Medical practice he has partnered with the Saipan Office on Aging to assist seniors in their "homebound" program.

I congratulate Rose Mondala, Director of the Office on Aging for her ideas in helping the local seniors. It is one thing to tell someone to follow good nutrition, and quite another to go to someone's home and do a "cabinet check" and see what they are actually eating. I suspect that the medical needs of many seniors are not being addressed, and the visits by Dr. Hocog are a step in the right direction.

Visiting doctors are not new idea, and there is a national association for visiting Physians.

If you are a local senior or concerned family member that is interested in information about home health, please give Pacific Home Health Care, LLC. a call at 234-Care (2273)
