THE POINT Network Program

The Rhode Island Division of Elderly Affairs (DEA), in cooperation with its community partners, has developed a new concept in elder care services. THE POINT Network Program (PNP) is designed to bring information, referral, and long-term care options counseling, as well as the most effective health care service and service delivery under one roof. The PNP initiative brings together the regional Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs), Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP), Senior Medicare Patrol Program (SMP), and Medicare Improvement for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA). The regional integration of these core services ensures that seniors, adults with disabilities, families, and caregivers receive essential and timely information that is consistent, culturally appropriate, and in their own communities. The six regional agencies and their service areas are:
