Trisha Ingalls, CEO for Rural Edge, presented on the SASH (Support and Services At Home) program in our area at the recent Corporator meetings at Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital. SASH is a component of the Vermont Blueprint for Health and is funded by Medicare as part of a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) demonstration pilot. SASH offers care management for residents with a concurrent goal of saving Medicaid/Medicare dollars while maximizing quality of life goals. SASH coordinator staff work closely with the participant, invited natural support systems, and community service providers. SASH is based on the premise that our communities’ elders can maximize the quality of their lives when supported in their own homes by the local support systems they are familiar with. Collaboration and utilization of in-place and local resources are the foundation of SASH’s success. The Corporators meet quarterly, and represent the communities in the hospital’s service area; they are important links in the essential communication system between members of our community and the hospital. The Corporators are an invaluable source of wisdom and perspective for the hospital leadership.
