Collaboration Committee

YHAA’s Collaboration Committee, which consists of over 90 providers of senior services, convenes every other month to increase collaboration, communication, and coordination of service delivery. A Cross-Referral Memorandum of Understanding among providers facilitates a “No Wrong Door” approach to connect clients with the right services to meet their needs. An annual Collaboration Committee cross-training helps all segments of Yolo County’s senior care system stay up-to-date and understand what resources are available for our seniors, their families, and caregivers.
