Alameda County Churches help patients navigate social, health services
Connie Fuller sits on a wood-framed bed in her Oakland apartment. Clear tubes snake from an oxygen machine to her nose. Her essentials are strewn around her, within arms reach. She’s confined to her bed due to obesity and lung disease. Fuller needs daily assistance, and because her family is not regularly involved in her care, a program called the Alameda County Care Alliance helps her manage it. The Alliance, a free program that is centered around five "hub" churches in Alameda County, fills the gap for people with advanced illnesses; some live in their homes and others live in facilities.
