Imagine your parents or grandparents without family nearby to care for them. Imagine your parents or grandparents waking up every day, lonely and confused. Imagine having to give up your home of many years without the support and guidance needed to address challenges related to aging.
"Barbara used to go to bed every night knowing that tomorrow will be the same as the day before. Her struggles of isolation and depression only deepened with the coming of every new day. She sensed a deep feeling of hopelessness with the loss of friends and family".
"After his wife passed away and without children living nearby, Robert had difficulties keeping his home in order after exhausting his life savings with expensive nursing care bills. As months passed, he dreaded waking up each day knowing he could not manage to live on his own at home".
For hundreds of seniors like Barbara and Robert, the Center of Concern’s staff and volunteers bring confidence, hope and companionship to residents by offering housing solutions, counseling, and supportive services to help residents overcome hardships and remain in their homes with dignity and independence. The Center of Concern imagines a brighter, stronger future for home-bound and lonely seniors by building stronger communities. But we can only continue our valuable programs through the generosity of people like you, who have been an integral part of our mission for nearly 40 years. Can I count on you? As a citizen of our community, you can provide the leadership and commitment necessary to help our most at-risk seniors remain in their homes and find expert help to overcome challenges related to aging. Tonight, when you close your eyes, imagine the love and concern you can provide seniors by giving during this holiday season.
With warm wishes for a blessed holiday season,
