Houston Apollo Model –Sustainable Intelligent Community Health Service for Older People In Remote Areas
A model for delivering medical services in rural areas by leveraging existing community activities—i.e., the Yunlin government’s congregate meal service (CMS) sites, where people 65 and older can come and receive subsidized meals in a community space.
