Saturday evening I experienced my first Gala at LifeLong Medical Care and all I can say is, “Wow!” Thanks to the support of our sponsors and community partners there was a lot to take in – playful and colorful décor, unique experiences offered at auction, and sumptuous cakes in the dessert frenzy. It was a lot of fun! But, what impressed me most was the generosity of those able to join us as we celebrated the retirement of LifeLong’s founding CEO, Marty Lynch, and kicked off a fundraising campaign for our Care at Home program to honor his 40 years of service.
Care at Home brings coordinated medical and behavioral care to homebound senior patients. This care is expensive, but allowing elders to remain at home as long as possible and still receive the best geriatric care is the right thing to do. With the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) dominating the news, you can see how Care at Home protects seniors with the most compromised health, who are the most vulnerable to viral illnesses.
See the program in action with the video we premiered at the gala.
Please consider a contribution in honor of Marty. We only need to $7,700 more to reach our goal of $35,000. You can designate your gift for Care at Home on our donation page. Please be as generous as you can so that we can assure Marty that LifeLong will be able to meet the needs of the growing numbers of elders in our community who hold a special place in his career and in his heart.
