New Grant Awarded for Small Homes
St. John’s has been successful in securing a three year grant for $437,000 from the Greater Rochester Health Foundation (GRHF) for dementia training and education as related to small homes development. The grant will allow St. John’s Educator/Dementia Quality of Life Specialist Mimi DeVinney to train dementia advocates and ancillary staff members to increase support for elders living with dementia.
Another focus area for the funding will be to support the creation of dementia-friendly physical spaces as we renovate for small homes.
In its entirety, the grant will ultimately further our implementation of programs that enable elders at St. John’s with dementia to live their highest quality of life.
