According to National Coalition on Mental Health & Aging, “Nearly 50% of individuals receiving long-term care have a mental disorder other than dementia; these disorders frequently co-occur with dementia and/or physical disabilities. Mental disorders are associated with poorer health outcomes, increased functional impairment, and decreased adherence to treatment.”

In order to assist these residents at Sholom, Sholom is pleased to announce we have been awarded funding for a two-year performance-based improvement project to develop staff training and patient services designed to enhance facility behavioral health services.  Sholom is one of only 21 participating senior care organizations part of the CareChoice network awarded this funding through the Minnesota Department of Health. 

Congratulations to everyone who assisted in obtaining these important project funds!
