The Flourish Network

The University of Louisville Institute for Sustainable Health & Optimal Aging manages the Flourish Network, an initiative that seeks to improve the health and well-being of older adults living in rural Kentucky communities.

The Flourish Network addresses this mission through five programs:

  1. The Flourish Program, our direct care coordination service 
  2. iCCOA, our educational curriculum 
  3. The Flourish Behavioral Health Graduate Internship Program
  4. Kentucky Coalition for Health Communities (KCHC)
  5. Memory 360, our dementia outreach and education component

The Flourish Network is grounded in the Flourish Model of Care, new way of understanding and approaching care coordination that links the Clinical & Behavioral Health Care Plans and Community Care Plans.
