The SCAN Foundation Funds New Program for Santa Clarita and South Los Angeles Seniors and Those Who Care for Them
Date:1/27/2009

Planning Grant to Partners in Care Foundation will identify ways to expand access to vital services

LONG BEACH, Calif., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The SCAN Foundation today announced it has awarded a $200,000 12-month planning grant to San Fernando Valley based Partners in Care Foundation (Partners) with the goal of expanding access to community-based long-term care services for seniors and caregivers in the Santa Clarita Valley and South Los Angeles. Planning for the Santa Clarita effort will commence this month while the South Los Angeles effort will kickoff on July 1.

The program calls for Partners to create the "Family Care Partnership" that will develop, test and disseminate best practices in aging, disability and long-term care services. Members of the Partnership for the Santa Clarita Valley include the core collaborators of the Santa Clarita Adult Day Health Care Center, Alzheimer's Association, the Los Angeles Caregiver Resource Center, California Health Innovation Center of Partners in Care, College of the Canyons, and the Heart and Stroke Association. Additional members include the Center for Healthcare Rights, Grandparents as Parents, LETMESAIL, North Los Angeles Regional Center and the San Fernando Valley Multipurpose Senior Services Center (MSSP). The south Los Angeles collaborative will be assembled soon.

In addition to improving access to services, a portion of the grant will be used to develop a plan for a new "under-one-roof" facility in Santa Clarita staffed by Partnership member agencies as well as a call center providing brief assessments and referrals, thereby making it easier for seniors and their caregivers to access the array of services provided by the Partnership.

Partners has accepted a challenge grant by the Foundation to replicate the Family Care Partnership model at a second site to be located in south Los Angeles.
