24/7 Access to Geriatric-Trained Medical Team

Attic Angel Community is partnering with Avera eCARE Senior Care services to better meet the medical needs of residents.

Providing a full continuum of health care services to aging adults, Attic Angel now offers round-the-clock access to Avera’s team of geriatric-trained physicians and registered nurses who understand the unique needs of residents. The Avera eCARE platform will serve residents in Attic Angel’s 44-bed Health Center and 22-bed memory-care unit.

Attic Angel Community is the first Wisconsin site to partner with Avera eCARE. With a history of serving seniors since 1953, Attic Angel is consistently recognized throughout the Madison, Wis., region for its high quality in independent senior living, assisted living, memory care, long-term care and short-term rehabilitation.

At the push of a button, senior care staff in Middleton will be connected to the eCARE Senior Care team via a secure, two-way mobile video unit. eCARE Senior Care also supports residents by:

• Connecting senior care facilities to geriatric trained clinicians 24/7
• Requiring fewer transfers so patients can receive the care they need close to home
• Assisting in managing multiple chronic conditions and offering a collaborative approach that allows local caregivers to focus exclusively on patient care

Avera eCARE, based in Sioux Falls, S.D., offers one of the largest and most comprehensive virtual health networks in the world – partnering with more than 400 health care systems, rural and urban hospitals, outpatient clinics, long-term care facilities, schools, correctional facilities and more across the country.

The Playing Field

The Playing Field Poster

Children affected by trauma such as homelessness and those with special needs such as autism spectrum disorders have different sensory needs for emotional support that helps them learn to manage behaviors. Our dream is to create a play space that allows children to be successful while ... being kids! Some of our plans:

  • A large open space for running (crowded spaces are often a behavior trigger for children)
  • High fencing and an appropriate climbing structure (children impacted by trauma or those on the autism spectrum often take bigger risks and climb higher)
  • Sensory panels that welcome independent play when children are agitated
  • A maze for children to walk through (this helps the brain to organize)
  • Small structures where children can feel safe
  • Specially designed pieces to work large muscle groups

By helping children at this critical point in their development, your gift will be helping the future of our community!
