Your Time and Money Makes the Difference

During the 2015-2016 fiscal year, we were able to help an average of 299 senior citizens each month in the following ways:

  • Provided a total of 12,756 hours of homemaking, personal care, nursing services
    • Offered a sliding fee scale that allows seniors to pay for services based on their monthly income (we are the only in-home service that offers a sliding fee scale).
    • 75% of the seniors we serve are surviving on less than $1000 per month and qualify for the sliding fee scale
  • Provided peace of mind and safety for seniors at risk for elder abuse and financial exploitation through 4183 hours of representative payee and case management services
  • Transported 80 senior citizens to 171 medical appointments
  • Created opportunities for seniors who are social isolated to have a phone, visiting or lend a hand friend
    • 609 community volunteers provided 2649 hours of service

There continues to be an average of 15+ senior citizens on our waiting list each month needing our help to stay in their homes.   Your support is needed and much appreciated. 


Nearly 1 in 5 people in Yellowstone County are over the age of 60
