The Humana Foundation announced that Morningside Ministries Senior Living Communities has been selected as one of three finalists in its highly competitive Humana Communities Benefit grant program. Chosen from among 38 applicants, Morningside will have a chance to win a $350,000 grant in early September that will benefit its web-based mmLearn.org program. The Communities Benefit program provides funds to local, nonprofit organizations that have an impact on healthy behaviors and healthy relationships in the San Antonio area and surrounding communities.
mmLearn.org at Morningside Ministries is a web-based, distance-learning service that provides education, training and support to those caring for older adults. mmLearn.org was founded in 2007 and has been 100% grant funded ever since its inception. The goal of mmLearn.org is to improve the quality of life experienced by older adults in care, as well as to help their caregivers cope with the often difficult task of caring for an elderly person. Family members and others can view over 300 caregiver training videos in “real-time” or “on-demand” on the mmLearn.org website for free at any convenient time, 24-7.
With grant funds from Humana Communities Benefit, mmLearn.org will significantly expand its outreach and marketing efforts to make many more caregivers throughout the community aware of the availability of resources to allow them to provide better care, reduce stress in their lives and become more knowledgeable of the aging process. As part of this initiative mmLearn.org will make its recording and webcasting facilities available to other organizations making it possible for them to promote their services, including services to older adults and their caregivers.
