The Senior Trifecta:
1 - Being on a low fixed income
2 - Having little to no adequate transportation
3 - Being physically limited
Imagine for a moment your mother told you that she goes to bed hungry, worried about her medications, worried about her bills, worried that the $733 each month won’t be enough to cover the cost of it all. Imagine she tells you that she wished she didn’t have to sit in her chair all day and watch mindless television or sit quietly that she would prefer to get out, but she’s scared. She’s scared you will find her dependent, not physically capable, not of sound mind. So as not to alert or alarm you, she rests quietly. Imagine, though she still has a desire to really live outside the walls that surround her. Imagine, that she could wake up and not only consider her worries, but have the possibility of a new awakening to live again!!
She now has a life, through the programs of RSVP. She can now call for a ride, see her doctor, go to the store, even stop at the park if she wishes, go to the Senior Center, celebrate a birthday with friends, call for a ride home, all for very little cost, and certainly not a burden to her friends and family. In all of this, she has found her freedom. She has learned to live again!

Ladies, thank you for the great meals I have been getting from your organization. They come at a good time and always are tasty. The deliverers are always very courteous. My life was suddenly changed when I lost my wife of 55 years on December 20th, 2016. She was a good cook, and we didn’t prepare for this time apart. You have made it possible for me to remain in our home which I appreciate. It has given me time to consider the alternatives for the “rest of my life.”
The Good Lord has blessed me in many ways and His putting us together proves He still cares.
Sincerely, your friend.
