Adopt-a-Senior is a new program from LOA that allows you to actively support the needs of seniors throughout the Roanoke Valley and Alleghany Highlands.
Your recurring or one-time gift provides the financial means to support:
• Insurance counseling
• In-home services
• Meals on Wheels
• Elder rights advocacy
• Crisis assistance
• Family caregiver assistance
When you Adopt-a-Senior, it’s almost like being there. Because in many ways, you are.
$1000 to assist more than 16 seniors with legal assistance.
$500 to assist one senior with in-home care.
$250 to assist 45 people with emergency services.
$100 for 12 trips to the doctor for one person.
$25 for a day of Meals on Wheels and Diners Clubs for two people.
MEALS ON WHEELS:
“ LOA has been so nice to me. I broke a hip and had to have a rod put in. I could not fix meals; was always on a walker which makes things hard to do. I live alone. The volunteers make it all so easy for me! ”
“ I have really been down for the past three years as I try to help my wife battle cancer. Seeing the faces of the volunteers and knowing that a hot meal is coming for the both of us has truly been a blessing. ”
“ I was paying $40 to $50 a month for rides to the doctor and to get groceries. This put a hardship on my family, friends and myself. I had to let some bills go to pay for rides. LOA’s transportation services have relieved me of this burden.”
“ I don’t know what older people would do without your services. I feel that you have enabled me to live, period.”
HOMEMAKER (in-home services):
“ Homemaker services have been wonderful for me. I am homebound and unable to move around much because of nerve damage from diabetes. Thanks to LOA I can enjoy being in my home because it’s clean and healthier for me! I look forward to seeing my Homemaker every Wednesday. LOA is wonderful at all that it does.”
