From October 15 to 25, 2017, a delegation which composed of Christian, Catholic and Buddhist，conducted a ten-day tour on senior care services in Pennsylvania. The project is organized and coordinated by Social Services Department of CCC&TSPM. The local host was Mennonite Healthcare Service Alliance (MHS) under MCC, which is the second time to cooperate for such tour study.
In order to reach the purpose and improve the effectiveness of this study, the MHS held a series of discussions and plans of study schedule with CCC&TSPM. The schedule includes visiting 13 different types of senior service facilities and 4 management trainings. The content includes two aspects: the first is the organization management, including human resources management, team building, financial management, marketing, funding and so on; the second one is practice and services, including the care of the senior with dementia, to design daily activities for senior people, to use of rehabilitation equipment and to design a reasonable living environment.
