The impact of the greater community is a powerful statement. EHM Senior Solutions has invested nearly $18 million over the past 10 years to provide care and services to those in need.
Center for Innovation and Education
EHM Senior Solutions believes in forming partnerships in a manner that will add value to the communities we serve. Examples of these partnerships are evident at the Center for Innovation and Education in Saline. EHM Senior Solutions has entered into a partnership with Arbor Hospice to provide end of life care to those in need and works in concert with the Saline Senior Center to prepare and deliver 10,000 meals annually to older adults. With the purchase of 90,000 square feet of a vacated hospital EHM has the unique opportunity to expand its programs and services to the community. These include: expanding rehabilitation services, creating a dedicated outpatient therapy area for EHM residents and patients, expanding the café and opening its restaurants to the public, further expansion of home delivered meals in Washtenaw County, and creating a community training and education center which will focus on innovation.

Staff Training and Education
EHM Senior Solutions is noted for its outstanding care which is initiated through a well-trained and educated staff. Grateful residents and family members are extremely appreciative of the high touch care and services that they or their family member receives. One way they show that appreciation is to establish staff training and education funds. These funds take two forms: annual contributions that are used for scholarships or establishing a named endowment that lives in perpetuity. A named endowment can be established with a gift of $25,000 and the donor and the Evangelical Homes of Michigan Foundation form a partnership to establish the criteria.
EHM Senior Solutions is a leader in using technology to improve the health and well-being of our residents and clients and at the same time reducing the cost of providing quality care. A few examples of the technology that EHM Senior Solutions uses includes medical alert systems, motion sensors, and a GPS tracking device in shoes. One distinct advantage of using technology coupled with in person care from a qualified staff member is the high tech / high touch service model that propelled EHM Senior Solutions as an industry leader. EHM Senior Solutions also provides a number of web-based programs where users are able to schedule services on an ala carte basis.
2016: More than $2.5 million used to help seniors
Organization remains focused on not only helping to provide quality care for those served, but improve the quality of life in the greater community. Here are some of the highlights of what has been accomplished over the last year:
- EHM Senior Solutions entered into a partnership with Ohio Presbyterian Retirement Services to provide much needed home care services in rural Southeast Michigan.
- Evangelical Homes of Michigan Foundation donors contributed more than $1.8 million to help bridge the gap between cost of care and an individual’s ability to pay.
- Through the Safe At Home Charitable Initiative, EHM Senior Solutions provided more than $60,000 in charitable services, so seniors could stay in their own homes. Services included installing medical alert systems, re-modifying doorways, building wheel chair ramps, and inserting grab bars in bathrooms.
