Rural Health Information Hub cites SASH among ‘COVID-19 Innovations’
As the excerpt on SASH reads, "Support and Services at Home (SASH) is an organization that works with affordable-housing organizations across the state to help older adults live independently.
"SASH staff reach out to individual residents to inform them about the vaccine and help them schedule and get to appointments. Staff has reached 90% of SASH participants in affordable-housing buildings in two communities, providing these residents with information, helping them schedule appointments, and making sure they attend both appointments at an in-house vaccination clinic."
"For SASH participants who don't live in affordable-housing buildings, SASH staff use a newsletter and prerecorded phone calls to reach every participant and help them schedule appointments and any needed transportation. This approach has helped 95% of these participants receive at least one shot of the vaccine."
"One SASH provider has hosted nine clinics at small low-income independent senior housing sites, resulting in about 152 people receiving both shots."
