Community Outreach Cottage Health hosts a variety of free and reduced-cost programs for community wellness. These programs offer Cottage employees the opportunity to share their expertise with the community and provide care for those most in need. Outreach programs include: • The Art of Parenting – Educating Pregnant Adolescents Through collaboration among Cottage’s education and women’s services departments along with the Santa Barbara Unified School District, a class called the Art of Parenting will launch in the fall of 2019 for local pregnant adolescents. The class is taught by two Cottage Health educators and focuses on: — Helping prepare teens for having an infant at home and the transition to parenting — Helping teens develop a social support system and connect them with community resources Our goal is to prepare students for parenthood and help break cycles that perpetuate intergenerational socio-economic disadvantage and reduce subsequent health-related issues. • Parish Nursing Our Parish Nurses provide service to community members at a variety of faith communities, senior housing facilities and homeless clinics. Nurses provide health assessments such as glucose and blood pressure checks, basic wound care, education, referrals, screenings and vaccinations. • Coast Caregiver Resource Center Coast Caregiver Resource Center, a program of Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital, supports family and other unpaid caregivers of adults with cognitive disorders and other disabling conditions. CCRC provides counseling, long-term care planning, educational programs, support groups, advocacy, legal consultations and respite care. • Community Case Management Cottage Health Community Case Managers monitor high-risk patients discharged from the hospital to the community.
