University of Washington School of Pharmacy
Since 2011, we have had a partnership with the University of Washington School of Pharmacy and their Plein Center for Geriatric Pharmacy Research, Education, and Outreach. This partnership helps us to increase education and support to residents and staff members alike. The faculty and students work to develop innovative ways to optimize older adults’ medication use while promoting healthy aging.
Working together we:
- Provide education for residents relating to medicines and other timely health care topics
- Contribute monthly newsletter articles
- Facilitate research focusing on topics of importance for older adults
- Provide resident and staff consultations with a clinical pharmacist
University of Washington School of Social Work
From the Life Transition Group to the Caregivers Support Group, we have collaborated with the University of Washington School of Social Work to design innovative support services tailored to benefit and meet the interests and needs of our residents.
University of Washington Retirement Association
Thanks to the partnership between Era Living and the University of Washington Retirement Association (UWRA), both University House Wallingford and University House Issaquah were founded. Instrumental to the development of both communities, the UWRA continues to provide retirees with excellent housing and programming. Our residents also benefit from this partnership, via a connection to UW and UWRA programs, an academic community, and the encouragement of lifelong learning.
