A Chance to Serve Those Who Have Served Us
Veterans Day is a time to honor the men and women who have served our nation. The therapeutic services at our Williams Adult Day Center, where programming encourages socialization, have been effective in reaching individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. There are now 26 veterans enrolled at the center, and it is important to ensure that these services remain available to them for years to come.
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 or some other form of memory loss in an award-winning center 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 $53.00.
- You can provide a veteran an extended day’s care for $60.00.
- You can provide a veteran one day’s care each month for an entire year for $636.00.
- You can provide a veteran an extended day’s care each month for a year for $720.00.
“Monetary donations will be used to provide scholarships for veterans who wish to attend the Williams Center more frequently than their government subsidies allow,” said Leigh Anne Groves, Senior Services’ chief development officer. “Financial contributions from the public mean so much to these wonderful men and women and their families.”
