the Not-for-Profit Difference"
The not-for-profit approach to care places emphasis on providing an atmosphere of fellowship and caring; on meeting the social, physical, and spiritual needs of the individual; and on helping older persons achieve the dignity and quality of life that they deserve in their retirement years. The emphasis on caring and on placing the need of the individual above all else has become the hallmark of not-for-profit homes and services for the aging.
Advocates for the Aging
Through face-to-face advocacy
and grassroots campaigns, we educate policy makers on
health, housing assisted living, home and community-based
services and care.
Our advocacy agenda is clear: to
advance policy that ensures quality services for seniors,
encourages advance planning, integrates delivery systems and
eliminates red tape for the people we serve.
