YOU ARE AWESOME! Thank you to everyone for your support of the 2019 Christmas For A Senior campaign! Due to the generous support of many volunteers, businesses, organizations and individuals, 104 lonely seniors received meaningful Christmas gifts this year.
During our day to day business operations, we see firsthand some of the many seniors for whom Christmas is just another day. We view the holiday season as an opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of seniors who are falling through the cracks. Christmas For a Senior began in 2009. Since its inception, the program has brightened the Christmas season for 756 lonely seniors who maybe would not have received a gift or even had visitors over the holiday season.
Lainie began as a Certified Nurse Assistant in long term care and hospice back in 1989." Hospice taught me how precious and short life really is and personally wanted to make my seniors' lives the best they could be." She continued her education and worked as a Social Service Designee and an Administrator in an Alzheimer and Dementia care facility, helping families facilitate services and offered support to clients, and training staff to provide quality care in the home environment. Lainie recalled her favorite subject in school was Home Economics,
“I always loved cooking, cleaning, organizing the home, and caregiving; all the things we do best at Alternative Senior Care!”
"I’ve learned a lot from my experiences for the past 30 years, caregiving for seniors, children and family members. Being a part of Alternative Senior Care is a privilege for me because I feel every day is an opportunity to find ways to bless others, especially in my own community. Overseeing our day-to-day operations at Alternative Senior Care, allows me to make sure our values and mission statement is implemented in all that we do to make each client feel safe, comfortable, and cared for in their own home. “
