The Housing Trust of Rutland County offers the SASH Program at all of its senior housing sites (SASH communities), as well as to seniors in its other rental apartments. SASH provides personalized coordinated care to help participants stay safely at home regardless of their age or residential setting.
Often, older adults and people with disabilities find it overwhelming to navigate through our health care system to find available services and resources. SASH provides a care coordinator and a wellness nurse who work in partnership with a team of community providers to assist SASH participants with their individual needs.
SASH participants determine their own health and wellness goals. Three areas receive focus to ensure goals are met:
- Preventative health care and services coordination
- Self-management education and coaching, particularly relating to chronic health conditions such as diabetes and arthritis
- Transition support after a hospital, nursing home or short-term rehab facility stay.
