Elder Care's mission is to ensure that mature adults live happy, healthy independent lives by linking them with the vital services necessary to maintain maximum independence in their home environments.
Through our programs we offer a broad range of services to seniors and their caregivers including: case management, adult day health services, caregiver support groups, home care services, specialized primary healthcare, physical therapy, and a social networking group.
Elder Care launches its 11th Annual Cool Room Project to help ensure older adults stay healthy in the summer heat.
The goal of the Cool Room Project is to be able to provide a 110-watt window air conditioner unit for one room in the home of seniors in our community who need a little extra help. The purpose is to help them experience relief from the oppressive heat and remain healthy during the summer with a properly air-conditioned room. The air conditioners are loaned out to seniors at no cost.
The Cool Room Project’s goal is to add at least ten air conditioner units this year to replace older units. At the cost of $120 per unit, the objective is to raise the funds needed for these additional units. To make a donation or to find out more about the Cool Room Project, please call 918-336-8500.
