Maple Knoll Outreach Services for Seniors, Let’s Do Lunch: Volunteer with Meals on Wheels

More than 10 million seniors in the United States (that’s 1 in 6) currently face the threat of hunger and 15 million seniors are living alone in isolation. And, each and every day, Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver one million meals to those who need them the most.

Many people know Meals on Wheels as a food delivery service for the homebound. However, what they don’t know is how impactful the moments of contact between the volunteer and the recipient can be. For many seniors, the volunteer who drops off their meal is the only person they will see that day. The delivery isn’t just about nourishment; it’s about a valuable moment of human connection. And in turn, it’s those moments of human connection that make volunteering so rewarding.

We know firsthand that Meals on Wheels clients are some of the country’s most inspirational and interesting people, full of wisdom and stories. Our volunteers have noted time and again that these experiences are what keeps them coming back to Meals on Wheels, and deepens their connection beyond food delivery.

With the senior population projected to double by 2050, Meals on Wheels needs to recruit a whole new wave of volunteers to serve the growing need. Meals on Wheels, which consists of more than 5,000 local programs in virtually every community in America, relies on an army of two million volunteers who deliver meals to seniors in need every day between 11am-1pm. These volunteers are crucial to the well-being of seniors across the country. With the majority of the current volunteer base over the age of 55, there is a real need to encourage and recruit people of all ages to get involved, donate their lunch break and volunteer.

What can you do? You can experience these special moments of human connection right here in Cincinnati by volunteering with Maple Knoll Outreach Services for Seniors. If you can’t stray too far from the office, donate your lunch break and participate in meal delivery close to your work. We have opportunities for volunteers to help by driving a meal to a deserving member of the community. Maple Knoll Outreach Services for Seniors delivers meals on 20 routes a day so drivers are always welcome to join our mission of providing meals to the elderly in our area.

Sign up to volunteer with Maple Knoll Outreach Services for Seniors and start making a difference right here in our local community today. Feel free to visit our website or Facebook page as well as contact Joshua Howard with Maple Knoll Communities at 513-984-1234 with any questions or concerns.

Skilled Care Pharmacy Establishes New Partnership with Maple Knoll Communities

Skilled Care Pharmacy, the Midwest’s leading institutional pharmacy that provides caring and expert medication dispensing to healthcare facilities, and Maple Knoll Communities, one of Cincinnati’s largest senior living organizations, have established a new partnership in which Skilled Care will be the main pharmacy provider for all of Maple Knoll Communities.

Through this partnership, Skilled Care Pharmacy will become the pharmacy partner for Maple Knoll Communities,
which includes the exceptional retirement communities of Maple Knoll Village and the Knolls of Oxford, Sycamore Senior Center, three affordable HUD Senior Living Residences, Maple Knoll Home Health Services, WMKV 89.3 & 89.9 FM Radio Station, a Montessori Child Center, and the Hemsworth Wellness Center. Larry Galluzzo, CEO of Skilled Care Pharmacy, noted Maple Knoll is the perfect fit for Skilled Care Pharmacy’s expertise.

“The number one priority of both our organizations is ensuring the health and wellbeing of older adults so they can live happy, healthy and active lives,” Galluzzo explained. “We know we’ll be able to bring value to their organization, just as we know we’ll learn a great deal from their approach to care.”

One of the most valuable assets Skilled Care Pharmacy brings to the partnership is its ability to deliver significant cost savings without compromising resident quality of life or care. For every medication the company recommends adding, it recommends discontinuing eight. Those reductions—coupled with the company’s approach to substituting medications and competitively pricing its products—can save senior living communities up to $1,000 per resident annually.

With multiple sites and hundreds of seniors in its care, the opportunity to operate more efficiently and reduce patient dependency on medication was an attractive business proposition to Maple Knoll Communities. The organization will also take advantage of Skilled Care Pharmacy’s extensive training and ongoing education programs.

“We are excited to start this new venture with Skilled Care Pharmacy. The experience and expertise they bring to the table can only further our commitment to providing the best care possible to those we serve,” said Jim Formal, president and CEO of Maple Knoll Communities.

The partnership is effective as of October 28, 2014.

Skilled Care Pharmacy provides expert medication dispensing and a variety of consultative services to health care organizations across the Midwest in a partnership defined by timeliness, accessibility, and continuous improvement. Skilled Care was founded in 1981 and currently serves more than 10,000 residents every day in 100-plus facilities. Skilled Care pharmacists are among the industry’s best and are available 24-7 to address client needs and provide actionable advice – including how to reduce the medications residents take, making them healthier and saving money.
