As part of Huntington Health, the Senior Care Network is located on the Huntington Hospital campus.
Our community-based team includes over 30 staff members as well as volunteers and students. Together we serve more than 15,000 community members annually, with the ultimate goal of helping seniors live safely in their homes.
Senior Care Network History & Funding
In 1984, Huntington received a generous bequest from the Margaret Bundy Scott Trust. The Trust agreed to an ambitious proposal to create a safety net for aging well that would fill critical resource gaps and bring fragmented services into “a totally integrated life-care system.”
With the Trust providing the crucial support for an extensive planning and development effort, Senior Care Network formally began on December 1, 1984. In the first year, the hospital, its medical staff and the professional services community laid the foundation for a cooperative community network. Core programs supported by public and private funds, cutting-edge projects and planning grants were put in place. Huntington Senior Care Network, one of only a few hospital-based programs of its type, soon developed a local and national reputation for innovation, quality care and aging expertise.
Today the original concept of a “one-call service” that promotes health and planning for longevity, assists with connection to community resources, and enhances the skills of those who provide care is as timely as ever. Reaching thousands of individuals annually, Huntington’s Senior Care Network remains a model community care program meeting the diverse needs of older adults, adults with disabilities and their families.
Senior Care Network is a nonprofit program supported by public generosity. Funding is augmented through proceeds of the Huntington Collection, the hospital’s resale and consignment shop.
