Humanities Foundation’s increasingly popular Food Pantry program reached a major milestone when the total amount of food delivered to residents reached 350,000 meals since the program’s inception in 2014. Through strategic partnerships with local churches, school districts, food pantries and community organizations the program continues to expand.
Humanities Foundation has continued to expand both the scope and depth of resident services at all of our properties. “Every community has unique needs”, says Lamar Mowatt, Director of Resident Services for Humanities Foundation. “We strive to customize services to meet these particular needs.” Services for our youngest residents have become an important new initiative. We partner with many churches, businesses and community organizations to create after school tutoring and mentoring programs that enhance the lives of our youth.
HF Transportation provides transportation services to our senior properties. Residents enjoy access to many community events, health fairs, educational programs and shopping trips with their neighbors.
The goal of SSAIP is to improve the health of our residents who have chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and congestive heart failure, to facilitate their successful aging in place. Participation is voluntary. Program evaluation will include measuring incidences of hospitalization and use of emergency rooms for treatment, as well as residents being forced to leave independent living for higher levels of care. SSAIP’s intent is to reduce all of these through education and onsite monitoring utilizing the latest in Telehealth technology.
