WHAT YOU CAN DO:
To ensure the highest level of care and daily living for residents, becoming involved in our mission can enhance the care received and contribute to a greater quality of life for the residents of the facility. From volunteering your time and talents, visiting the residents, or making a donation, the Home welcomes the community and thanks our supporters for helping us with our sacred mission. Your support can make a significant impact on our ability to continue providing the highest quality care. In the near future, we look forward to increasing the number of elderly we can service and increasing the level of care we can provide. We believe strongly in respecting our elders by building an establishment that is worthy of our rich heritage, one that views caring for the elderly as an honorable privilege and not an obligation.
