Our Services

Below are a few things your kind donations go towards!

Improved Care Opportunities

Sometimes the smallest things can make life more enjoyable. Whether that's having good meal options, arts & crafts supplies, etc. A portion of funds will go towards providing supplies to provide the little things in life to make living in an LTC facility more enjoyable and home-like.

Care Expenses

As the main goal of the organization, funds will be used to go towards living expenses for elderly patients who cannot afford to live in LTC facilities under their current financial means.

Facility Upgrades

We aim to provide financial assistance for facility upgrades for LTC facilities throughout Georgia so that they may be able to make their homes more accommodating and home-like for their residents.

Global Impact

We have a vision that expands outside of the boundary lines of Georgia. With your help, we would also put our efforts into expanding the reach of this nonprofit to one day make a global impact!

What's the Difference?

There are several options when it comes to Long-Term Care (LTC) for your loved ones, so the difficulty is figuring out which option(s) fit the best. As defined by the CDC, long term care facilities provide a variety of services, both medical and personal care, to people who are unable to live independently. Between a nursing home, assisted living facility, personal care home, retirement communities, and hospice there are several similarities and differences alike. Below we've included some descriptions on the different service options to seek based on the type of care that would be best suited to your loved one.

Nursing Home

Nursing homes traditionally provide medical and personal care in a clinical setting. Residents will receive assistance with their activities of daily living (ADLs) and medication management, but typically these residents are those that are not mobile w/o help and have severe cognitive impairments. This care is typically more on the expensive side, but can be paid for by Medicaid once the beneficiary has spent down their own assets.

Assisted Living

In an assisted-living facility, care is provided in a home-like and social setting to stimulate a more independent living style. These homes usually provide more recreational activity and even some off campus transportation if provided. These residents typically are more mobile or at least more responsive to care than those in a nursing home and don't need 24 hour care, but still receive assistance with ADLs. Alzheimer's or dementia' patients can still be compatible with these services.

Personal Care Home

In these homes, residents usually receive medical monitoring around-the-clock. The residents also require specialized memory care due to cognitive disorders, such as Dementia, Alzheimer's, or Parkinson's. These residents may also be more independent and allowed to move around the home to common areas and events.

Retirement Community

These communities allow for a more socially integrated lifestyle for those older persons that are independent and live further away from family and friends. In these community, elderly people can meet, live next to, and socialize with people their own age, while style living independently.

Hospice Care

Hospice care is often associated with those who are more terminally ill and provides physical and emotional care and comfort for the remainder of their patient's life. While associated with terminal illness, hospice can also be for those elderly patients who require more assistance than an assisted living or personal care home can provide. These services often work in conjunction with assisted livings and personal care homes by travelling to the facilities.

Adult Day Care

These services are for those who need supervision during certain hours of the day. These individuals need some help, but are not seriously disabled. Adult day care services can be provided in long term care facilities, and can help provide home caregivers such as friends or family a break from the increased demand.
