Comal County Senior Citizen's Foundation (CCSCF) is embarking on a building renovation project. Our goal is to restore our 45-year-old building. The CCSCF proposes renovations to the existing Senior Center, interior and exterior, which will result in an all-inclusive innovative facility with up to date technology, efficient use of space, and programs that are designed to serve all seniors 50 years and over, veterans, and disabled adults from Comal County and surrounding areas. With the population growth of Comal County (named second fastest growing county in the Nation for 2017 by U.S. Census Bureau), CCSCF plans to be proactive with the expansion of all of our programs, which include Meals on Wheels to home bound individuals in 4 counties, Congregate Meals in 3 counties, Exercise and Fitness Programs designed for seniors 50 and over, Education Programs with topics of interest to aging adults, and daily Socialization activities. We hope to expand our programs to accommodate the growing number of retirees in our areas of service.
Hospice of the Piedmont provides patients with compassionate pain control and symptom management, often in the comfort of their homes. We also care for patients in hospitals, assisted living facilities, continuous care retirement communities, and nursing homes. Because our services are covered by private insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare, they are available at no cost to the patient and family.
But, we also do something unique: We share the journey with families as well, ensuring that those who are grieving-adults, teens, and children-have a safe and supportive place to mourn in our high-quality, long-term grief support groups, classes, camps, and events. These services are available at no cost to everyone in the community.
Based in Charlottesville since 1980, we are the region's oldest and most experienced hospice. We've shared the journey with tens of thousands of patients in the following counties: Albemarle, Augusta, Buckingham, Culpeper, Fauquier, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Nelson, Orange, and Rappahannock.
Because we are a nonprofit organization, our bottom line centers on the needs of our patients and families-not a financial benchmark. We are dedicated to delivering the most comforting end-of-life experience possible. Along with our experienced and compassionate hospice staff and active bereavement program, we support our patients and families with the only full-time hospice medical director in the area, our serene eight-bed Hospice House (one of just two in Virginia), and our state-of-the-art Center for Acute Hospice Care (CAHC), a 10-bed unit at the Northridge Medical Park on Ivy Road.
Shared Housing of New Orleans helps elderly homeowners remain in their homes
by Shared Housing of New Orleans
Shared Housing of New Orleans keeps elderly and/or disabled homeowners from going to nursing homes that do not want to or need to be there. We match them with individuals who need a place to live. There is an even exchange of room and board by the homeowner for light housework and companionship by the homeseeker. Our mission is to prevent the unnecessary institutionalization of elderly and disabled homeowners. Also we attempt to reduce homelessness by providing a transitional housing option for individuals seeking a place to stay. Independence and dignity are preserved in a mutually beneficial homesharing arrangement.
Brush Up Nebraska Paint A Thon is a community based volunteer program that paints the exterior of homes of qualified low income elderly and low income permanently disabled homeowners in the Omaha Metropolitan Area so that they can maintain their property, increase energy efficiency, and beautify the community that they have lived in for many years.
