Bloomington Meals on Wheels is happy to announce a grant awarded to us by Home Instead Senior Care Foundation. This grant of $7800 will be used to expand the capacity to serve those low-income clients who do not have the ability to pay for their meals.
The Home Instead Senior Care Foundation Endowment Fund was established in 2013 with the following impact areas:
Alzheimer’s Disease & Other Dementias
Support specialized dementia education and training for families and medical professionals. Launch innovative programs that lead to better diagnosis and treatment. Create support services for the betterment of the Alzheimer’s or other dementia caregiver.
Health & Wellness
Implement programs that bring meaningful change to the healthcare system, making it more accessible for seniors. Provide charitable care for seniors in genuine need. Invest in wellness and prevention initiatives, nutrition and exercise programs.
Education & Research
Make lifelong learning a possibility for today’s medical professionals while investing in the future through scholarships for those studying geriatrics. Begin promising research initiatives that result in meaningful change for seniors’ health, wellbeing and quality of life.
Encourage successful aging in cities and rural communities by strengthening local public services and systems that support the elderly. Ensure the most basic needs of seniors are met through outreach initiatives and collaborative partnerships with the public and private sectors.
As the efforts of the Foundation continue to emerge, we will look forward to sharing our outcomes and success stories.
General endowment funds support critical areas of need based on the discretion of the Board of Directors.
