TIME TO SERVE THOSE WHO SERVED US
Veterans Day is a time to honor the men and women who have served our nation. Unfortunately our nation isn’t fully serving our veterans, especially when it comes to senior care. The therapeutic services at our Williams Adult Day Center, where programming encourages socialization, have been effective in reaching individuals with varying degrees of dementia. There are now 31 veterans enrolled at the center, and it’s important to see that the availability of these services to the participating veterans continues.
At the Williams Center a structured program of meaningful activities is provided, along with nutritious meals and snacks. Exercise, arts and crafts and musical presentations are just a few of the activities that facilitate the interaction of program participants with each other. Medical supervision is included, as well as the opportunity to schedule onsite baths and hair and dental appointments. The staff includes registered nurses, certified nursing assistants and trained activity coordinators. Together they provide compassionate care for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory impairment in an award-winning facility specially designed with the needs of the participants in mind.
The public can help sustain these vital services by supporting Senior Services “Adopt a Veteran” campaign. Donations can be made at any level. For example,
- You can provide a veteran a full day of care at the Williams Center for $60.00.
- You can provide a veteran one day’s care each month for an entire year for $720.00.
“Monetary donations will be used to provide scholarships for our veterans who wish to attend the Williams Center more frequently than their government subsidies allow,” said Holly Marion, interim vice president of Development. “Financial contributions from the public mean so much to these wonderful men and women and their families.”
