Your Gift Helps Old­er Adults Thrive

Older adult lady in green

RRF Foundation for Aging's matching gift benefits older adults like Cecelia, 82.

Cecelia is proud of her inde­pen­dence, and is thank­ful to KYC’s sup­port­ers who helped her suc­cess­ful­ly nav­i­gate through her health chal­lenges this summer. 

Although she enjoys keep­ing up with her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren over the phone, she does not have fam­i­ly liv­ing near­by. This sum­mer, Cecelia was hos­pi­tal­ized after a planned pro­ce­dure, and was ner­vous about return­ing home after her hos­pi­tal stay. Thanks to KYC’s Old­er Adults team, she nev­er felt alone — she had a true part­ner through­out her recovery.

Cecelia received vis­its from KYC’s Home Deliv­ered Meals team sev­er­al times each week. Not only did she receive deli­cious meals, but her friend­ly Meals vol­un­teer dri­ver also checked on her well-being and pro­vid­ed her with a lit­tle com­pa­ny. Ceceli­a’s case work­er helped her man­age her health and dai­ly liv­ing as they worked togeth­er to make a plan that suit­ed her health goals. 

This sup­port was all the more crit­i­cal as our com­mu­ni­ties have faced the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic. Thanks to the sup­port she received through KYC, she was able to recov­er safe­ly and independently.
