Care Coordination Consultant

Crystal Sanchez-Griffiths is experienced as a Physician and Community Liaison, developing relationships crucial to patient care and aftercare. Crystal has worked in various areas of healthcare and  is passionate about Patient Advocacy and Care Coordination.

Our Mission: Life Journey Partners of America is a Non-profit Organization committed to building and supporting  Caregiving Communities within existing communities to address gaps in care and provide resources for Caregivers to care for themselves while caring for others.

Our Vision: As our population ages, more people may need caregiving, and many will be unable to pay for the care needed, requiring care by family and friends. We envision a community supportive of caregivers and committed to finding solutions to help them maintain their health while caring for others and remain a part of the community at large through shared services and visits.

Thankful Thursdays:

Meetings will be held the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the Month, 11am-12:30pm for Meditation, Holistic care practices, and Laughter for hired and family Caregivers and those who want to support the Caregiving Community. The group meets at the Vendor Venue in Fountain Hills at 16714 E. Avenue of the Fountains. The group will follow a Joe Dispenza Guided Meditation during the meeting. There is ample parking in the rear.
