Age In Place Project
Meadowbrook Healthcare Introduces Age-In-Place Project
In February, we were pleased to introduce Meadowbrook Healthcare’s Age-in-Place (AIP) Project; a project intended to highlight the benefits of aging in place, but also to honor individuals who have lived a full life and to share their stories.
Four life stories featuring residents June Weiskotten, Mary Norton, Joe Swinyer and Larry Sovay (who sadly passed away in April) were shared on our website, social media and in presentations to various clubs and organizations.
“The point of this project initially was to show the value of being able to age in one place. ” Said Community Relations Coordinator Sandy Geddes. “But what really happened is that it was a real-life history lesson, and we’re so fortunate to have been able to tell everyone’s story.”
“As we get older, the importance of knowing you will be cared for is important,” said Meadowbrook’s Administrator/CEO, Paul Richards, “but knowing that your true essence will not be forgotten is as important. We are able to do that here; the residents are part of our family.”
Please visit our website, https://meadowbrookhealth.com/features/age-in-place-project. The stories and accompanying photographs will be on Meadowbrook’s website, and shared on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.
