Interfaith receives grant from Today’s Health

Interfaith Older Adult Programs has received a $20,000 grant from Today’s Health HMO, a Medicare Advantage Health Plan that is offered through the Universal American family of companies. The Company’s Collaborating for Good Health Giving Back Program will support Interfaith Older Adult Programs in its mission to link older adults with a caring community throughout the Greater Milwaukee area.
“We are delighted that our organization was selected for this donation,” said Renee Jaeger, public relations director of Interfaith Older Adult Programs. “We recognize that the health and well-being of our seniors is dependent on support from generous community partners like Today’s Health HMO.”
Interfaith Older Adult Programs will use the grant money to fund more than 75 educational seminars reaching thousands of seniors throughout the Greater Milwaukee area.  The seminars will focus on educating seniors about low-income assistance programs available for people with Medicare, and to pay for the expenses of a volunteer program that connects older adults with frail seniors  who will drive them to medical appointments, help them with daily errands and engage them socially.
“Our Healthy Collaboration model demonstrates our approach to healthcare in recognizing that the key to an older adult’s well-being is their relationship to the community,” said Hal Sadowy, PhD vice president and general manager of Milwaukee for Today’s Health. “It is an honor to support organizations like Interfaith Older Adult Programs that share this same commitment to embracing older adults and helping them access the benefits they are entitled to.”
