Many individuals and their families are confronted with the costly and difficult choice of institutionalizing a loved one in a nursing home or retirement facility but often face financial and emotional constraints.
Senior Day Services functions as a cost effective alternative to these difficult choices as we allow much needed respite to caregivers so that the elderly population can remain living in the comfort of their homes, surrounded by their loved ones for longer periods of time.
But we need your help.
Now more than ever the senior population needs our support, especially through various philanthropic vehicles. There are various opportunities for giving that include donating needed items, in-kind services, volunteering, and making a direct financial contribution to our organization.
Here is how your financial contribution makes a direct impact:
|$5||Provides a meal and activity at one of our senior centers|
|$49||½ day of Day Care our facility|
|$75||Transportation, a shower and full day of Day Care|
|$320||Provides a home bound senior with 2 hours per day of Personal Care for 7 days|
|$1300||Provides a Veteran with 20 days Day Care and all the services|
Together we can give our area’s most vulnerable the tools they need to achieve greater independence and age with dignity.
