$10,000 Grant Awarded to NEHD

November 8th, 2010

The Department of Public Health has announced 10 winners of a $10,000 grant to advance the training of ‘Consistent Assignment’, a facet of the National move toward Person-Centered Care. The award was based on a competitive grant writing offer, and was awarded to only 10 nursing facilities in the State of Massachusetts.

New England Homes for the Deaf comprises a Nursing Home long term care and short term rehab facility, a Rest Home, and an Independent Living facility, all of which cater to deaf and deaf/blind seniors.

This grant will facilitate two years of ongoing training in this challenging movement toward excellent resident care.

The nursing staff of NEHD are very proud to have been selected for this honor.
