Over the past year, the network has continued to expand and now includes over 100 member sites in 13 US states with one site now in Canada! We are proud to include members of individual senior communities/franchise agencies as well as full corporate networks who have chosen to enroll all their building sites into Struthers Parkinson’s Care Network.
Our outcomes focus on improvements in staff knowledge/confidence in working with those with Parkinson’s, timeliness of PD medication administration, and client/family satisfaction with services provided by each network member site. We are proud to hear stories of greater PD understanding from a wide variety of staff, including administrators, direct care providers, dietary staff, front line, housekeeping and maintenance workers, all who touch the lives of those living with Parkinson’s on a daily basis.
Much work remains to be done. We thank our dedicated members, site champions, network supporters and funders who make this important work possible, and we look forward to continued growth and expansion of SPCN in the coming year.
