Our Mission...The mission of the Senior Charity Care Foundation is to improve the quality of life of elders in need.
Our Purpose...The purpose of the Foundation is to provide financial assistance to those in senior care settings and senior apartments who require care, services or support but have exhausted all other potential funding sources and do not have the financial resources to pay.
Peggy, a senior we recently served .
Peggy attended our mobile dental clinic in June.
We had not seen Peggy since the photo above was taken. At that time we helped her get a new top denture. Her old one had a tooth which had broken out of it. For a year she was gluing it back in and then soaking it at night in acetate to re-glue it in the morning. Finally it got to where the tooth would not stay in past breakfast. At that point she stopped her volunteer work and secluded herself - until she found out about SCCF.
As soon as we found out about Peggy we got her the new denture and she resumed her volunteer work for another non-profit. She came to our mobile dental clinic in June at her senior apartment complex. She wants to make sure that her remaining bottom teeth stay healthy. She had a cavity filled, along with a cleaning, x-rays and exam. We will follow her for her six-month checkup as well.
Our Continuum of Caring Award Honoree...
Fred Lampropoulos, Chairman and CEO of Merit Medical. Will receive this award at the Hope Benefit.
As you can see from the chart above the most requested services are dental in nature - the mobile dental clinic, the referrals to additional dentist and dentures account for 73% of the services we provide.
All of us have had parents and/or a significant adult in our life who helped to shape us into the people we are today.
