To our friends and supporters of Sagepoint Senior Living, we thought that you’d like to know a little bit about what your donations make possible. This is Miriam Kimball’s story:
When Miriam Kimball’s father grew increasingly fragile from Parkinson’s disease, she moved him from a Pittsburgh nursing home to Sagepoint. Her mother, Miriam Donnellon, soon became a fixture there. Her daily visits cultivated close relationships with the staff, so close, in fact, she often invited staff members to her home for tea and cookies.
Years later after her father passed away, her mother needed care for severe dementia. Miriam Kimball again chose Sagepoint.
“Because my mom was in that frightened state, she was desperate for a friend,” Miriam Kimball said. “So many of the aides remembered her from when she cared for my dad. Even though my mother was not very lovable at times, they still provided her with loving care. The aides and nurses are simply outstanding human beings who will listen and help anytime, day or night.”
Because of the high costs of the care we provide and the limitations of government funding, we’ve set a goal to raise $1 million to enhance and expand care for our patients and residents by 2021. The first phase of this campaign we are calling Forever Grateful and our first goal is to raise $150,00 by the end of 2018. We know that you can’t give to every worthy cause, but as you consider your year-end donations, please consider donating to Sagepoint.
