Eaton Senior Communities is proud to announce that it is the recipient of the 2015 LeadingAge Innovations Fund Grant for Addressing Wellness Programs in Affordable Senior Housing Settings.
The LeadingAge Innovations Fund seeks to catalyze innovation among nonprofit providers of aging services by awarding grants for programs that promise to have a demonstrable impact on residents, clients, families, employees, or the broader community.
The Residences at Eaton Senior Communities (ESC) offers individual wellness coaching and has a Metropolitan State University of Denver student intern provide the coaching. The $50,000 grant will assist ESC to increase the number of wellness coach interns at ESC and create a replicable framework for establishing and maintaining the affordable housing/higher education institution partnership. This framework’s goal is to improve residents’ lives through wellness coaching while attracting talent to the field of aging services.
