CoveCare Center is honored to be a recipient of the first round of grants made by the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation to improve health and human services across New York State. The foundation supports programs that strive to respond to the unmet healthcare and healthcare related needs of individuals, families and communities.
“We are honored to support such a wide range of organizations doing critically important work to improve the health and well-being of New York’s most vulnerable communities,” stated Alfred F. Kelly, Jr., Chief Executive Officer of Visa and Chair of the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation Board.
The Foundation’s grant will support CoveCare Center’s Senior Partnership Services. Working with the Prevention Council of Putnam and Putnam County’s Office of Senior Resources, the program provides services for residents of Putnam County aged 55 and over who are struggling with mental health or substance use issues. These services include assessments, short-term therapy, peer recovery coaching, and care management to promote individual recovery and wellness. There is a nurse on staff for health recommendations, and the team collaborates with local medical providers. In addition, the mobile team can meet with seniors anywhere in the community to assist with housing needs, including necessary accommodations for accessibility, and to connect individuals to community resources. The service is free to those who qualify.
“All of us at CoveCare Center want to thank the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation for their support. With this funding, we will be able to reach even more seniors in our community to help them address mental health and substance use issues, promote independence, and enhance their quality of life,” commented Eric A. Toth, CEO of CoveCare Center, located in Carmel, NY.
