Valentine’s day is right around the corner, and while some of us love the day, some others feel left out in the cold. If you're not interested in spending valentine’s day with a romantic partner there is a new trend that has everyone celebrating; Palentine's day!
Senior Moments from H.O.M.E.
What’s the first word that pops into your mind when you hear “choice”? For me, it’s “freedom.” Living in “choice” implies variety: being able to pick from a whole smorgasbord of foods, clothes, TV shows, toothpaste, ways to get to work, musical instruments to try out in fifth grade. “Choice” is one of those words that everybody likes.
Dawn Olderr Montalvo has been caring for other people’s children most of her life. You helped find her a place to stay when she needed someone to take care of her for a change.
Your support ensures residents in our independent living apartments get homes that come with all the amenities.
Sometimes a little support is all it takes to keep our seniors self reliant. For Carol Ogden, 81, that support is the H.O.M.E. shopping bus.
Over the years the Rowes have turned to H.O.M.E. several times for upkeep and repair including weatherization, painting and, just this fall, a new hot water heater. Your support for that work means the inside of the Rowes’ house in the Rosemoor community on the South Side, where they live with their dog, Lucky, is just as warm as their marriage of 55 years.
As we prepare for Giving Tuesday again on December 3, 2019, we’re proud to share stories that demonstrate both the impact of your support and also the diversity of experiences among the seniors who have benefited from the generosity of our supporters.
