LifeCare Alliance, better known as the leading Meals-on-Wheels provider in the Midwest, has launched a new initiative–the SixtyPLUS project. The goal of SixtyPLUS is to bridge the gap between the healthcare and community-based service systems to ensure the safety and well-being of seniors.

The program is designed to arm first responders with the necessary resources to alleviate non-emergency runs while developing a long-term care solution to meet the increasing demand for seniors.  LifeCare Alliance, one of the oldest and largest providers of services for older adults, will intervene to assist in the home, reducing seniors’ reliance on excessive emergency resources.

In many cases, the needs include basic help in the home, such as meals, home repairs, or chronic disease management, which can help seniors remain safe, independent and in their own homes. Partners will securely share relevant data with LifeCare Alliance to identify senior needs and, over time, measure improvements in service delivery and client outcomes.

Fannisha Paige, client and community liaison of LifeCare Alliance, presented the SixtyPLUS project to key city leaders of London. London Mayor Patrick Closser, and London Fire Chief Todd Eades agreed that this new initiative would be an excellent fit for the residents of London.

“For the city of London, SixtyPLUS has added another level of care to our expanding operation,” said Eades. “I am looking forward to helping as many seniors as we can.”

Closser stated, “LifeCare Alliance is a great organization, and we are happy to partner with them. When they approached us about the project, I was very excited about SixtyPLUS, and anytime we can partner with a great group like LifeCare Alliance and help our citizens out, it’s a win-win for the community.”
