The UMRC Foundation has been awarded $7,000 from the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation – Anna Botsford Bach Fund for Seniors.

This one-year grant will support caregiver training in the Household Model of Care to create the Heart of the Home at UMRC’s Kresge Rehabilitation and Skilled Care Center at its Chelsea Retirement Community campus.

“This grant will help provide intensive training in the Household Model that will empower caregivers, promote greater job satisfaction, and provide greater autonomy for residents and caregivers alike,” said Jena Wisely, associate executive director/administrator with Kresge Rehabilitation and Skilled Care Center in a press release.

“Through this person-centered care model, households will be created within the Kresge Center that feel more like home for our residents, enabling staff to better meet their needs, develop closer relationships with residents and their families, and improve our already outstanding care for older adults,” Wisely said.

Kresge Center recently received a 5-Star Rating from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS) for excellent quality and patient experience, ranking Kresge Center in the top 10 percent of skilled care facilities in the United States.
