This collaboration bridges the gap between community support and medical care, ensuring that elderly residents live and thrive in the comfort of their homes. This new alliance will leverage state-of-the-art virtual care technology to offer personalized management of chronic and complex conditions while coordinating with the community providers supporting this older population, such as primary care, other specialists, and home care providers.

"We recognize the growing needs of our older adult community members and are committed to providing holistic solutions," said Allan Ouimet, Highland Valley’s CEO. "Our partnership with Vesta Healthcare will empower them with 24/7 immediate, high-quality clinical support while remaining connected to their community."

Sean Rogers, Vesta Healthcare’s Massachusetts General Manager, commented, "With the expertise of Highland Valley Elder Services in-home and community-based care coordination, and our proficiency in supporting people with chronic and complex conditions at home, we can offer a more robust and integrated solution to coordinated care for older adults living in these communities."

The partnership aims to:

Improve Health Outcomes: With the ability to wrap around support and timely clinician-led interventions, older adults can expect better access to care managing their chronic and complex conditions, leading to a higher quality of life.

Foster Community Connection: By providing access to 24x7 access, care and support in the home through Vesta’s virtual platform, the older adults Highland Valley serves to remain rooted in their community for as long as possible so they can benefit from local events, community activities, and the excellent community support systems of western Massachusetts.

Empower Healthy Days At Home: The combined resources of both organizations will enable older adults in even the most rural areas to remain safe, healthy, and well-supported in their homes and communities.

This innovative collaboration is set to roll out fully in January 2024. The community and its elderly population that Highland Valley serves can look forward to a future where medical needs and community support go hand in hand, ensuring a fuller, richer life at home.
