Collaboration: Partnering with HCR Home Care, a certified home health agency, and other community and foundation partners, HCR Cares identifies the health care needs of the times and responds with research and educational opportunities.
Activities: Falls cost our health care system $4 billion annually. Research by HCR Cares developed and tested a Falls Prevention Program that establishes a culture of safety and provides group exercise to reduce falls and fall-related injuries. This initiative is quickly making Rochester a Center of Excellence for Falls Prevention.
Research: With a grant from the Greater Rochester Health Foundation, HCR Cares addressed health disparities in Hispanics, identifying culturally competent practices that promote improved health management. As a result, patient outcomes were greatly improved.
Education: To address our area’s nursing shortage, HCR Cares provides nursing education grants to individuals to further their careers by becoming a licensed practical nurse (LPN) or a registered nurse (RN). Our goal is to increase and diversify the nursing workforce. Mentors also tutor the grantees and help with time management and study skills to ensure success.
Socialization: HCR Cares brings community leaders together and elevates best practices in Rochester by sponsoring educational seminars presented by scientific experts and leaders in the health care industry.
