Center for Gerontology to develop training resources to enhance quality of home care for older adults

August, 2016 ‑- Concordia University Chicago’s Center for Gerontology has been awarded a $30,000 contract by Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI). According to the terms of the agreement, the university’s Center for Gerontology will work with LSSI to develop and implement a suite of customized training resources for aides who deliver home care to older adults.

“Concordia-Chicago’s relationship with LSSI is a win-win for all parties,” said Dr. John Holton, director of the Center for Gerontology and visiting associate professor of gerontology. “LSSI’s improved care delivery will enhance its competitiveness in the marketplace relative to other care providers, and the older adults served by LSSI’s staff will benefit from improved quality of care.”
