ShareCorps-LifeCare Alliance-
 
 
 
LifeCare Alliance is a not-for-profit organization that provides a comprehensive array of health and nutrition services to residents of Central Ohio. LifeCare Alliance’s mission is to lead our community in identifying and delivering health and nutrition services to meet the community’s changing needs. Founded in 1898 as the Instructive District Nursing Association (IDNA), LifeCare Alliance was Columbus’ first in-home health care agency and Ohio’s first Visiting Nurse Association, services we proudly continue today. In 1987, the agency name was changed to LifeCare Alliance to demonstrate the agency’s expertise in care for people through old age by an alliance of health care professionals, volunteers, and programs designed to promote independent living. Today, LifeCare Alliance maintains a staff of over 102 full-time employees and 104 part-time employees. LifeCare Alliance also remains the leader in the state of Ohio with nearly 10,000 active volunteers who contribute over 130,000 volunteer hours annually. LifeCare Alliance has emerged as a national leader in merger collaborations, having successfully completed five in the last ten years with Meals-on-Wheels of Madison County, Project OpenHand-Columbus, the Columbus Cancer Clinic, IMPACT Safety and Marion County Meals-on-Wheels. These mergers have eliminated or reduced costs and the redundancy of services in central Ohio, resulting in more funds for programs, enhanced services and an increase in client access to basic needs. The bottom line is that according to the latest AARP statistics, LifeCare Alliance saves Ohio taxpayers over $62,000 per year for each client we assist in remaining independent and in their own homes, where they want to be. Finally, LifeCare Alliance continues to strive to serve all those in need and has zero people on waiting lists, and a critically needed meal can be delivered tomorrow. We strive to continue to accept all in need……everyday.

Member Duties : As the AmeriCorps VISTA member, you will research the impact of Food as Medicine initiatives on patient health outcomes through focus groups with healthcare providers and clinic patients. In focus groups, you will identify challenges faced by cancer patients in receiving adequate nutrition. To address these concerns, you will determine the best model of food delivery for the clinic and its patients and recommend solutions to common obstacles to nutritious food access. You will also initiate new partnerships with farms, produce distributors, and other organizations, soliciting their participation by developing presentations, educational tools, and other communications materials. By formalizing these community relationships and clearly identifying organization roles and responsibilities, you will strengthen program effectiveness. Finally, you will evaluate interventions by surveying clinic volunteers, community partners, and patients, and make recommendations for program adjustments.
