Independence Foundation Joins Teaching Nursing Home Project as Funder
The Independence Foundation has granted $25,000 for the Revisiting the Teaching Nursing Home Initiative, which will support the pilot project to trial and validate a better model of residential care for the Commonwealth's frailest residents. The new funding will partially support the participation of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing in the pilot. The Independence Foundation now joins The John A. Hartford Foundation, the Henry L. Hillman Foundation, and JHF as funders for the initiative.
Independence Foundation Executive Director Susan Sherman was a part of the original teaching nursing home initiative in the 1980s, on which the new pilot is built. Sherman is an active participant in the Revisiting the Teaching Nursing Home Initiative and serves on the initiative's national and statewide advisory.
