Denver, CO (October 31, 2016)—The Aging and Public Health Section of the American Public Health Association (APHA) and Archstone Foundation have presented the SASH (Support And Services at Home) program with the 2016 Award for Excellence in Program Innovation at its 144th Annual Meeting, held this afternoon in Denver. The award identifies best practices models in the field of aging and health.
Recognizing that the country’s growing population of older adults requires a greater integration of systems than previously available, SASH has successfully linked the healthcare and housing sectors, improving health outcomes and reducing the growth of Medicare expenses in senior communities.
Said NCHH’s Nancy Rockett Eldridge, Executive Director, "I’m so grateful to Archstone Foundation for recognizing the real impact SASH is having on thousands of seniors aging at home. This recognition fuels our drive to see it replicated all across the country.”
