UCHS Awarded for Best Practice
November 3, 2017
United Church Homes and Services (UCHS) was recently honored by Friends of Residents in Long-Term Care at their annual meeting in Raleigh. Lee Syria, President/CEO of UCHS accepted an award for Best Practice for the UCHS Grant a Dream program.
The core of UCHS Grant a Dream program is to grant basic dreams to the seniors that we serve in long-term care, assisted living, PACE and HUD housing communities. Many of our elders are frail, lonely, with fixed or limited incomes, few opportunities and often rely only on memories to bring them happiness. UCHS Grant a Dream turns those memories into a new reality. Since piloting the program in 2013, UCHS has been awestruck by the excitement generated by the opportunities and the gratitude received from Grant a Dream participants, families, and staff.Download PDF
