The Center for Aging & Values is looking for core contributors. These are individuals or groups who are willing to donate a minimum of $1,000.00 to further the work of the Center.
Our current initiative is focused on funding a pilot program that will address the gap in financing for hiring qualified caregivers for community-dwelling elders who do not meet poverty cut-offs, yet are unable to pay out-of-pocket for care giving. This program is will reduce re-admission rates to the hospital, free-up skilled nursing beds, and insure elders are able to remain in their preferred home settings as long as possible.
Initial funding goal is $10,000 from core contributors which will be used as matching funds for grantors.
