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.

Success of our Mobile Dental Clinics...
Thanks to the State of Utah, Department of Health, Division of Family Health and Preparedness, Bureau of Primary Care, Office of Primary Care and Rural Health grants we have received, we have been able to change the lives of seniors in Davis, Salt Lake and Weber Counties for the better. Paying by the hour for services rendered rather than per procedure, SCCF saved a total of $39,714 from July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016. Seniors participate in their care by paying a flat hourly rate (percentage of the hourly charge) dependent upon their income. We received a total of $12,440 in client co-payments.
Through this grant period, we served 251 new seniors through 541 encounters with our mobile dental clinics. Below is one chart that depicts the demographics of the seniors served.

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 85% of the services we provide.
We met Margaret at her senior apartment as she came to our ice cream social to hear about the services we provide. She stayed afterwards for assistance in completing her application, because of severe dyslexia. With her monthly income well below 100% of poverty, she had just $8 per month to help with the cost of dental care. She attended our mobile dental clinic and was fortunate that she did not need any additional extractions. Click here to read more about her story and to review our mid year appeal.
