Covenant Health Network Awarded Mercy C.A.R.E.S. Grant to Develop the “Caring for our Care Force” Emotional Wellness program




At Covenant Health Network (CHN), we recognize the dedication of those working in senior care. To show our gratitude and recognition for those who show up every day to care for Arizona's seniors, we are rolling out "Caring for our Care Force," an initiative funded by a generous $186,702 Community Reinvestment grant from Mercy C.A.R.E.S.


About the Program 

“Caring for our Care Force” offers evidence-based emotional wellness workshops to the direct care and supervisory staff of nursing homes and assisted living centers. The workshops are a partnership between CHN and two faculty members of Louisiana State University’s Department of Psychology, Dr. Matthew Calamia and Dr. Rebecca Brossoit. Focusing on practical skills for navigating work and home life, CHN is proud to invest in the well-being of senior care staff.

 

How to Get Involved

CHN is actively inviting nursing facilities and assisted living centers who serve Mercy Care enrollees to participate in this important initiative. If you would like to learn more about the program for your staff, please contact Cheryl Goodwin at cgoodwin@covenanthealthnetwork.org.
