“The MGH Institute of Health Professions has been fortunate to partner with the Moorings at Squantum Gardens as part of our Health Promotion and Clinical Education Programs since 2013. This partnership provides students with the hands on experience they need in their education while supporting and assisting the Moorings residents in developing healthy practices and increased strength through exercise. The pairing of the post graduate students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at the Institute with the Mooring residents is beneficial for all and a program that will be continued for many years to come. What has made a difference in the success of this program is The Moorings having an on-site Resident Service Coordinator to reach out to residents and promote the program. That’s also one of the reasons we collaborate with Peabody Properties as together with their Resident Services Team we’ve also brought the program to residents in Chelsea and East Boston.”
