HUMANITIES FOUNDATION TO PROVIDE HEALTH TELE-MONITORING TO SENIOR RESIDENTS IN CONJUNCTION WITH MUSC

GOOD NEWS FROM SSAIP
SSAIP (Sustaining Seniors Aging in Place) is a program developed in conjunction the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) to provide health tele-monitoring in the Humanities Foundation’s senior properties. Currently 6 properties in Charleston and 1 property in Richmond Hill, Georgia, are receiving these services designed to help residents age in place successfully and thus be able to remain independent in their residences. Data received from the tele-monitoring program is housed in a secure server at MUSC and will be available to the resident or the primary care physician.
MUSC has provided a staff member, Dr. Kathy VanRavenstein, to spearhead the SSAIP program by providing nursing and physical therapy students who conduct supportive services, including video exercise programs and clinical monitoring. Dr. Van Ravenstein was awarded a $137,985 Duke Endowment to provide video physical therapy services and fit bits for humanities foundation senior residents in all 6 Charleston properties.
The Humanities Foundation has also negotiated two partnerships with nursing schools in Georgia and Northern Virginia. In each case, the nursing students will receive clinical experience in our properties. South University in Savannah will be providing nurse practitioner students quarterly to assist in monitoring residents at Ashleigh Place in Richmond Hill. Lord Fairfax Community College will partner with Mintbrook Senior Apartments in Bealeton when that property opens in late December.
RESIDENT SERVICES NEWS
Ashleigh Place in Richmond Hill, GA, has received several Horizon Housing Foundation Grants to support resident services in that community. These grants have enhanced the resident services program by providing a community garden, on-going resident activities such as movies, games, and educational programs, and a Holiday gathering for all residents and families, including a visit from Santa Claus.
Thanks to a grant from the Junior League of Charleston, residents at Seven Farms Village were treated to a wreath-making workshop on December 12. With assistance from the volunteers from the Junior League, the residents turned out beautiful holiday wreaths for their doors and for the property manager’s office.
COMING IN JANUARY
In partnership with the Lowcountry Food Bank, residents of the Charleston senior properties will have tours of their local grocery store with volunteers who will teach them how to shop for economical and healthy foods.
