Our new Horticulture Therapy Program will provide a nature-based intervention to improve physical and mental well-being. Participants will be guided by a therapist in an accessible community garden that will also serve as an outdoor classroom and meeting space.
Many seniors with dementia never receive the care they need to live full and dignified lives. They struggle with unmet physical, psychological and social needs — and often become disconnected from the things and people they love.
The CONNECT initiative aims to change that for the people we serve through PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly), almost half of whom are living with a diagnosis of dementia.
Our vision is to introduce the Montessori Inspired Lifestyle® methodology, which research has shown to improve outcomes for those with dementia. This person-centered approach to memory care can help individuals relearn and reengage in a way that is meaningful and purposeful.
Montessori values are based on equality, dignity, respect, independence and individual strengths — consistent with our beliefs and mission at Miami Jewish Health.
Seed money is needed to launch the Montessori Inspired Lifestyle at the Florida PACE Centers in Miami. Our goal is to raise the critical resources needed to help these individuals reconnect with a world they are slowly losing.
Remote patient monitoring (RPM) can help seniors manage chronic health problems by keeping them linked to caregivers in real time. It’s an innovative solution that we want to share with the more than 900 participants in our Florida PACE (Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly).
Most PACE participants are quite frail and suffer from several health conditions. RPM devices will allow them to easily monitor their blood pressure, pulse, weight, glucose level, oxygenation and other biometrics.
This data then gets transmitted to the clinical team at PACE for, assessment and early intervention. All of which can lower healthcare costs, encourage positive habits, improve quality of life, and eliminate the need for ER visits and hospitalization.
Our REACH initiative seeks to raise $100,000 to equip Florida PACE participants with smart RPM devices. Being able to offer this virtual option for preventative care will make a world of difference for our community’s most vulnerable, chronically ill seniors.
As the largest provider of healthcare for seniors in the Southeast, safety is of utmost importance. A particular concern is a rise in hate crimes and threats against Jewish organizations, such as ours. Our RENEW initiative seeks to raise $100,000 to proactively safeguard our community against increased physical and cyber threats.
Specifically, a portion of these dollars is intended to meet new federal government recommendations for securing sensitive data against cyber-attacks. RENEW is an opportunity to enhance prevention, protection, response and recovery measures for the optimal safety of our patients, residents, visitors and staff.
