Resthaven applied for and has received several grants to help us live out our mission during COVID-19
- A grant from the Emergency Human Services Fund provided support for emergency needs related to COVID-19. We were granted $5,000 to support technology needs, including both health monitoring equipment and engagement equipment to mitigate the effects of being unable to do group activities.
- A grant from the Community Foundation of the Holland/ Zeeland Area to support mental health initiatives. This helped us install a program called “It’s Never too Late” (IN2L) at Maple Woods. We were able to begin this program at The Care Center earlier in the year and iN2L has enabled us to provide more personalized engagement to our residents. At Maple Woods, iN2Lwill be used to engage our assisted living residents with personalized programing.
- A grant from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare enabled us to rent tents to use for outdoor visits as the weather changed in the fall.
- A grant for infection prevention from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services covered the purchase of misting-style cleaners to better disinfect surfaces and will help upgrade the HVAC filtration system in the Care Center to better filter out particles.
We are so thankful for this extra support we received to help combat COVID-19 in our programs.
