Elder Care in Tallahassee FL
Elder Care Services Director, Mark Baldino is in a festive mood because Brian Moran and Lisa Brown have just delivered Hopewell’s basket of gifts for Elder Care Services Elder Elf program. Elder Care Services Elder Elf Program has helped over 150 needy Tallahassee seniors this Holiday season by enlisting volunteers and community partners like Hopewell to ‘adopt’ a senior. Elder Care Services gathered a list of items these seniors were in need of and connected them with people and organizations who wished to help. Hopewell’s adopted senior needed items such as: towels, shampoo, a shower chair, shoes and new sheets. Lisa Brown, RN enlisted the efforts of everyone at Hopewell to help gather the items, wrap and deliver them. Lisa said, “We are all so grateful that we are able to help make someone’s holiday a little brighter.” Besides for the Elder Elf program, here are some of the other great things Elder Care Services does for our Tallahassee seniors.
