Community Health Representative Program (CHR)

The San Carlos & Bylas Community Health Representative Program (CHR) has been servicing the community members of the San Carlos Apache Tribe for 50 years and continues to grow, we currently have 15 employees. Our CHR Program works very close with San Carlos Apache Healthcare Corporation, Public Health Nurses, WIC, MCH and Arizona Long Term Care Programs, etc.

We conduct daily home visits to check the vitals and wellbeing of elderly or disable patients, as requested by family, Physicians, or individuals. We monitor patients, provide patient care and offer homemaker services (i.e. washing dishes, cleaning their homes, chopping wood, bathing, etc.) We also conduct inmate screenings every Wednesdays of each month. We complete an average of 40 medical referrals/consults per month. We currently visit and educate the enrolled clients of Health Start Program on a weekly basis. San Carlos/Bylas CHR is also a major source for non-emergency medical transportation since many community members are without basic transportation. We work directly with the Social Workers of the Hospital in scheduling and ensuring that patients make it to their appointments on a daily basis. The San Carlos Apache Tribe is still rich with culture and native language and our staff of the CHR Program often interpret/translate for the doctors and members. We also ensure and assist the patient with understanding and executing the after-care directions of health care professionals. We are also Car Seat Technicians and do education every third Thursday’s of each month, for a Tribal Member obtaining a car seat from our CHR Program. Below is our DHHS Mission/Vision statement.
