We’re thrilled to announce that several generous businesses have stepped up to support the assistance we provide to seniors, adults with disabilities and caregivers. From now until December 31, Excellacare, LaJoy Group, and Imperial Senior Suites are each committed to matching donations made to the AAA 1-B fund, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000. Guardian Medical Monitoring has agreed to match dollars up to $5,000.
We would also like to thank Serenity Health, GT Independence and Harmony Transportation Services who have also jumped in with a match challenge.
Between now and the end of 2018, help us double your donation! The dollars we raise will further our mission and ensure that those we serve have the support they need.
You can have a direct impact on this campaign by making a secure, online gift today or by sending a check payable to the Area Agency on Aging 1-B, Attn: Helping Hands 29100 Northwestern Highway, Southfield, MI 48034.
“The Area Agency on Aging 1-B (AAA 1-B) helped elongate my best friend’s life. My friend was rapidly declining in a nursing home and receiving sub-par care. Contacting the AAA 1-B, allowed us to access the coordination of service that we needed to allow him to move in with me and become his caregiver. His last few months were filled with comfort and love. After his death, there was not enough money for cremation services so the AAA 1-B charitably stepped forward to ensure that he was honored with dignity and according to his loved ones’ wishes. I believe that if it was not for the AAA 1-B, he would have passed away sooner. I am so grateful that the agency helped to honor his life and memory.” Emily C.
“The AAA 1-B has helped me in countless ways over the years. I am 100 years old and live alone in a small apartment on only my modest social security. My husband has been gone for over thirty years and I no longer am able to drive. The AAA 1-B works with the Older Persons Commission to ensure that I am able to charitably receive a holiday meal when I am not able to spend the day with my family. I look forward to both the meal and the friendly conversation from the volunteer. I cannot thank the AAA 1-B and the OPC enough for making my holidays happy.” Helen B.
