Henry Rothschild Irrevocable Trust Endows PHI for Home Care Training

September 12, 2014

PHI recently received a $2 million endowment from the Henry Rothschild Irrevocable Trust. This gift, The Henry and Gertrude Rothschild Endowment, is the first of its kind provided to PHI. The Rothschild Endowment will directly support PHI’s efforts to provide high-quality training and certification for home health aides.

“We are grateful that the Henry Rothschild Irrevocable Trust has chosen to support our organization,” said PHI President Jodi M. Sturgeon. “This gift will expand significantly the sustainability and impact of PHI’s work to provide high-quality home health aide training.”

PHI’s home health aide training model comprehensively addresses both the clinical and interpersonal skills needed for the often complex and challenging role that home care workers play in the homes of elders and people with disabilities who need services and supports.

“For consumers, a well-trained paid caregiver can mean the difference between a supportive, empowering daily experience, and one of significant tension, marked by inadequate communication and support,” Sturgeon said. “For a client’s family members, a well-trained paid caregiver can be a strong, trusted ally in ensuring high-quality care and support for a loved one.”
