Security Health Plan of Wisconsin Inc. has donated $2,000 to the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Wisconsin Chapter.
The donation will help the chapter’s efforts to train volunteers who can provide information and support to families coping with Alzheimer’s disease. It’s estimated that one in every eight Americans over the age of 65 is touched by Alzheimer’s disease, including more than 50,000 people in the 52 counties served by the Greater Wisconsin Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
The Security Health Plan donation will help pay for training materials, program materials and 24 volunteer starter kits. It will also cover costs for a six-hour training program that volunteers must complete to be certified as volunteer presenters.
“Alzheimer’s disease touches so many families in one way or another,” said Security Health Plan Chief Administrative Officer Steve Youso. “In supporting the Alzheimer’s Association, we are supporting our members, our families, our neighbors, our friends.”
Security Health Plan is a medically driven health maintenance organization sponsored by Marshfield Clinic, now serving more than 200,000 residents in 36 counties of northern, western and central Wisconsin. Security Health Plan holds a 4.5-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for its Advocare Medicare Advantage plans.
