Unrestricted gifts help Senior Independence continue to bring services to the underserved without compromising quality of care. This keeps vital programs available where they're most needed.
Older adults with limited resources often have limited access to healthcare as well. Without assistance, these individuals are at-risk for illness, injury, loss of mobility within their community, and even a loss of their remaining independence.
Unlike many home care providers, Senior Independence chooses to aid the underserved older adults in Ohio by partnering with government-sponsored funding agencies to provide the care needed. But the payment from these agencies, while very important, does not meet the full cost of care and services provided. Many well-known home care providers choose not to serve those clients who qualify for funding assistance because they know that the reimbursement will not cover their costs.
As a not-for-profit organization, Senior Independence is committed to serving older adults regardless of who is paying the bills, and to serve all clients with the same high quality of caring and compassionate service. Unrestricted gifts from individuals, corporations and foundations are vital to connecting community resources to those in need.
