America’s population above the age of 65 is forecast to expand dramatically over the next three decades. To help meet the growing needs of our aging population, a gift of $18.8 million was announced today from Parker Health Group to the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
This gift will create the Parker Health Group Division of Geriatrics in the medical school’s Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, which will focus on improving care for seniors through applied research, education, and interdisciplinary collaboration.
Parker Health Group is the Gold recipient of McKnight’s Tech Awards for Skilled Nursing in the Quality category. The McKnight’s Tech Award recognizes how technology is used to improve the lives of older adults and those who care for them.
Parker’s elders are quick to notice when Erika Relova drops a few pounds. Out of an almost parental concern, they will ask if she feels well, or if she has been eating right. That is when the fitness instructor talks about being a professional bodybuilder who is – as they say in the language of the sport – getting “stage lean.”
Parker Health Group, Inc. will extend its agreement with the City of New Brunswick to provide grant funding for the continuation of two vital programs aimed at enhancing the quality of life for City seniors.
