IHI has decades of experience and data on the elderly population served in Delaware. IHI's subsidized programs provide equal access to the same health services to all seniors, regardless of race, gender, income, or marital status.
Both organizations have focused on solving the issue of health disparities for the frail and low-income seniors in Delaware. They recently worked together to negotiate and adjust the funding reimbursement rates to meet the cost of supplying healthcare services.
The grant will provide 45 low-income seniors access to housing, social services, meals, and transportation to stores for one month. "We are excited to be working together with Highmark and look forward to positive impact these funds will have on our seniors in need," stated Larry Cessna, President/CEO of Ingleside Homes Inc.
