SOUTHFIELD, Mich. - National Church Residences and Presbyterian Villages of Michigan (PVM) are combining their 126 years of experience to provide enhanced service coordination to residents at numerous PVM Villages. This new relationship began in early December 2015 and will be fully implemented by February 2016.
With its proven track record as the country’s largest provider of service coordination, National Church Residences will provide service coordinators at 21 PVM affordable housing sites across Michigan. Through this strong collaborative relationship, PVM will become the 66th Quality Assurance Program for enhanced service coordination managed by National Church Residences.
Under the Home for Life model, National Church Residences has enhanced service using its Care Guide tool to understand a community’s overall health and wellness profile, and to determine which residents may need more extensive support to continue living in the community. The service coordinators also arrange preferred providers to help the seniors and set up a more extensive socialization program. The two organizations will also be integrating these services into the many other innovative programs and services for which PVM is well known, such as resident engagement, wellness and service excellence.
Roger Myers, President & CEO for PVM, stated, “PVM is pleased to continue our path of innovation via partnering with National Church Residences. Our missions, values and philosophies are extremely well aligned. They are highly known throughout the senior living and aging services field for an exceptional commitment to quality service with dedication as a consumer-focused organization.”
“Finding the best ways to allow seniors to continue to stay in their homes as they age is a passion for PVM and National Church Residences. We are so pleased to partner with them to serve their residents,” said Terry Allton, Senior Vice President for Home & Community Services at National Church Residences.
