Family First Health receives $20,000 grant from the Hahn Home Fund of the York County Community Foundation for care at the White Rose Senior Center
York, Pa. (6 May 2015) – Family First Health is pleased to announce it has received a $20,000 grant from the Hahn Home Fund of the York County Community Foundation for support on delivering primary care to members of the White Rose Senior Center. The goal is to increase access to primary care while improving the health of older adults in the City of York.
As a federally qualified community health center, Family First Health recognizes that healthy living goes beyond the walls of its health centers. Senior centers are often a focal point for aging services in the community, with more than 100 older adults spending much of their day participating in activities at White Rose Senior Center.
Through this grant, Family First Health will implement the “hub and spoke” primary care delivery model to utilize nurse practitioners and physician assistants to deliver on-site health needs assessments and primary care services to increase access to care and connect those who need it to a medical home. Services are slated to begin in July 2015.
On-site providers will be able to treat individuals for everything from the common cold to managing chronic conditions, as well as administer educational programming that encourages healthy habits. Such use of the grant embodies the Health & Well-Being and Community Culture Change priority areas in the Embracing Aging Grants Program.
