Volunteerism (7/3/2018) PDF Email
 
 
 
SeniorNet Community,
 
 
SeniorNet Staff and Volunteers

SeniorNet was founded in 1986, when gas was $.93 cents a gallon, the Ford Escort was a popular car and Ferris Bueller's Day Off  was a hot movie for all to see.  
 
We were founded based on the premise that "sharing wisdom" and "volunteerism" will make our world a better place.  And to this point we are fortunate that so many of you contribute your time and energy to help others learn computer skills, mobile devices and the latest technology.  
 
We are reaching the 3 million mark for students that have  benefited from our classes, workshops and seminars...something we can all be proud of.
 
Thank you for your dedication and service.
 
There are some of you that have squeezed even more time and energy from your lives to do more with other organizations.
 
Charlene Kosc, Center Leader for Medina, while doing an outstanding job with her center and supporting Headquarters in pilots such as Distance Learning, she and her husband, Greg are Pet Therapists. They work with Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs, Inc.  a non-profit 501 (c) 3 which evaluates, tests, certifies dogs and their owners as therapy dog teams. 
 
Charlene and Greg (along with their dog Gunther) visit the  Western Reserve Masonic Community Skilled Unit the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays  and Samaritan Care Center in Medina the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays  of every month. Both of these locations are Senior Assisted Living Facilities (in Medina) that provide skilled care, therapy and rehabilitation.
 
Although Gunther maybe the star of the show with his warmth and charm, Charlene and Greg get the Kudos for doing all that they do in reaching out, volunteering and making things better for our seniors.
 
Thank you - Charlene and Greg
 
 
  Happy 4th of July !!

UMSON Grant (5/11/2018) PDF Email

 

 

 SeniorNet Community,

 

 

 

 

Last year the University of Maryland School of Nursing, (UMSON) shared a valuable educational study - grant with SeniorNet. The grant included an Interactive Patient Portal eLearning Program developed by researchers from UMSON and Johns Hopkins University.

Participants were "paid to learn" how to engage and use the Patient Portal, (a secure online tool that gives patients convenient 24-hour access to their personal health information). Modules:

  • sending secure emails to health care providers
  • viewing lab results and medications
  • requesting medication renewals
  • making medical appointments
  • giving family members and caregivers access to assist with care

Education also included on-line peer group discussions and a dedicated hot line hosted by the professional staff at UMSON. Participants shared their experiences through testimonials which were included in our newsletters.

UMSON is now granting SeniorNet their Interactive Patient Portal eLearning Program (education modules and videos). This program will be included in our curriculum data base for all SeniorNet centers.

The results from the study will be published and undoubtedly help millions of seniors and their caregivers across the United States.

We thank the distinguished Eun-Shim Nahm, PhD, RD, FAAN and the University of Maryland School of Nursing for collaborating and their long-time support of our mission. We are very fortunate and grateful to have benefactors like UMSON.
