Aging Care Connections Awarded $965,000 Grant for National Expansion of Transitional Care Program

Aging Care Connections recently secured a $965,000 grant from The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation to support the expansion and implementation of the Bridge Model of Transitional Care and AIMS (Ambulatory Integration of the Medical and Social) interventions to directly serve a significant population of low-income, vulnerable older adults in the Chicago metro area and nationally. The funding will support services to older adults and their caregivers by Aging Care Connections and our partners, Rush University Medical Center, Jewish Social Service Agency in Montgomery County, Maryland, and Kenneth Young Center in Illinois.

Aging Care Connections and Rush are leaders in Chicago and across the nation in implementing evidence-based, social work-led care models to support vulnerable older adults and their families. By supporting older adults and caregivers throughout the continuum of care—at hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, primary care offices, and their homes—we are able to utilize the “medical home” concept. The Bridge Model, developed by Rush and Aging Care Connections, is an interdisciplinary person-centered care intervention that supports older adults to ensure a safe and healthy transition from the hospital back to their homes and communities. Bridge is the only recognized dementia-friendly evidence-based transitional care model.
