The Benevolent Fund was created to help residents offset the cost of in-home care. Residents in need of services such as housekeeping, meal preparation, bathing or medication reminders are able to contract with Advanced Living Home Services, a subsidiary of Advanced Living Management and Development, Inc. This allows our residents to age in place safely. As many as 20% of our residents receive such care. While many residents are eligible for some type of financial assistance through the County Waivers and Options Program, some find themselves unable to pay their portion. The waiting list is very long and many residents never even have the opportunity to utilize the services of the Waivers and Options Program. We have discovered that this extra help can substantially extend the time a resident can continue to live independently and reduce premature nursing home admissions. When we become aware of such situations, Advanced Living steps in to cover the cost with reserves from the Benevolent Fund. Doing so is crucial to our residents’ well-being and enables them to remain healthy and safe as a part of our community. For hundreds of low-income seniors, Advanced Living Communities is a place to call home. Contributions to our Benevolent Fund ensure they can stay as long as possible. Please contact our corporate office with questions at 215-362-0227. And thank you! Your generosity enables us to provide an improved quality of life for those who need it most.
