Experimental: Community-based nurse care management
Participants randomized to receive the intervention worked with a nurse care manager who provided them with a comprehensive set of geriatric and chronic disease preventive services.
Other: Community-based nurse care management
The community-based nurse care management program developed by Health Quality Partners uses nurses working in the community to provide the following integrated set of services to older adults with chronic illness over the long term in order to prevent avoidable complications of their diseases and aging; geriatric assessment, care coordination, health education, self-management coaching, weight management, physical activity, gait and balance training, medication adherence, care transition support, ongoing monitoring and symptom detection, collaborative problem solving with patients, families and health care providers.
No Intervention: Usual care
Participants randomized to the control group received usual care without the involvement of a nurse care manager.
