WELCOME TO CARE GUIDE SERVICES

OUR MISSION

Care Guide Services works as a personal health navigator supporting returning citizens with an integrated link from health coverage to health care.

OUR STORY

Greg Town, CEO of Care Guide Services, Inc.

After working 40 years, I have learned that for me it is more rewarding serving others,
especially those who are underserved. I believe in redemption and that is where
our mission begins.

Care Guide Services provides its clients with an integrated link from health coverage to
health care. Typically, this has been managed separately if handled at all. We eliminate
this “disconnect” resulting in better health outcomes.

Under-served individuals have significant health care needs and face barriers in
obtaining health coverage and health care. Many struggle to understand their options
and need assistance.

We have a simple solution that engages clients from raising awareness to long-term
client support. No one organization can do it all, but by working together with common
goals, we will make a positive impact on our clients’ lives and society.

We look forward to serving you and your organization.

Stronger together,

Greg H Town, CEO

Health literacy is vital to improving one’s health. Our Health Education Literacy Program (HELP) is a free program specifically designed to educate Returning Citizens and their family members.

Our innovative program breaks down volumes of complicated health coverage to care information into easy to understand one to two minute “bites” via any mobile device. Our HELP Learning Management System is accessed by the clients on a voluntary basis.

1) What is Health Insurance?
2) How Does Health Insurance Work?
3) Why Should I Get Health Insurance?
4) Can I Afford Health Insurance?

In addition to HELP, we offer Personal Health Care Navigators who can assist clients with their coverage to care questions. Our services are provided in both English and Spanish.
