POAH celebrates health care partnership with MGH for its Boston senior housing

November 28, 2017

POAH helped celebrate the resumption of a community partnership to bring health services to the residents of Blackstone Apartments in Boston, MA. The Connect to Wellness Program connects seniors and disabled residents at Blackstone with health care providers from Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Senior Home Care to keep them healthy. Through the program, an MGH nurse checks vital signs, advises on self-management of medical conditions and medication and helps coordinate and communicate with other medical personnel.  Boston Senior Home Care provides social services to residents through a geriatric social worker and resource specialist who offer counseling, referrals, and assistance with entitlements programs.  The program was formerly called the Senior HealthWISE program.
