Summit by Morrison Announces Partnerships with Key Community Organizations
Whitefield senior living community to partner with three nonprofit organizations to provide complementary services to residents
Summit by Morrison will partner with three highly regarded organizations to complement the wide range of services it will offer residents. Announcing collaborations with Granite State Independent Living (GSIL), North Country Home Health & Hospice Agency (NCHHHA) and Caleb Caregivers is a milestone for Summit by Morrison as the Whitefield senior living community prepares to open its doors to residents this spring.
“Summit by Morrison and each of these organizations exists to serve seniors,” said Chad Dingman, Chief Executive Officer of Summit by Morrison and The Morrison Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Care. “Teaming up with GSIL, NCHHHA and Caleb Caregivers is an added measure that will help support the residents of Summit in their pursuit of a healthy and active lifestyle. It’s important that our residents be able to live as they choose.”
Granite State Independent Living, a statewide organization that provides services and supports to help people live independently, will complement services offered by Summit by Morrison to help residents in Independent Living who may want or need additional assistance with personal care, household chores or transportation.
“Our personalized services allow us to meet the needs of any resident who wants or needs help, beyond the services already offered by Summit by Morrison,” said Donna Potter, director of home care north, Granite State Independent Living. “By partnering with Summit by Morrison, GSIL will help residents live as independently as they choose.”
North Country Home Health & Hospice Agency will work with Summit by Morrison to help residents of Independent Living with short-term care needs and activities of daily living. Residents in Assisted Living can also opt for additional services provided by NCHHHA; the two organizations will work together seamlessly to meet residents’ needs.
“We are very passionate about serving our community,” said Tiffany Haynes-Hicks, MSN, RN, director of hospice and nursing, North Country Home Health & Hospice Agency. “Because of our long history of working with The Morrison, collaborating with Summit by Morrison makes sense, and we look forward to working together to help residents enjoy their lives to the fullest.”
Caleb Caregivers, a local nonprofit organization based in Whitefield, will have a unique partnership with Summit by Morrison. Caleb volunteers will complement Summit by Morrison’s transportation services; both organizations will help residents who may need assistance getting to doctor’s appointments, running errands, or seeing friends and family. Caleb Caregivers will also provide opportunities for residents of Summit who drive and have vehicles to volunteer as drivers and to visit with seniors in the area.
“Summit by Morrison will be a wonderful asset to the Whitefield community, and we’re excited to be a part of it,” said Sheena Godin, executive director, Caleb Caregivers. “The partnership with Summit by Morrison is a great fit; we can work together to help members of our community and to offer opportunities for others to be engaged as volunteers.”
