My name is Gael and I’ve been a Health Care Aide at Shepherd’s Care Foundation for 21 years. What sets Shepherd’s Care apart is how we care for our residents with compassion and dignity - but we need your help.
Meet Ruth, an incredible mother, spouse, and woman of faith. At age 95, she now has dementia and resides in long-term care at Shepherd’s Care Foundation. When she moved here, regular bathing for herself was impossible. Having someone bathe her remained a real fight, and she didn’t want help with such a private routine.
There is a solution, though: shower chairs. We have a few old ones, but they are worn and outdated.
We desperately need five new shower chairs (more if we can afford them); chairs that allow for a dignified and comfortable experience for all the "Ruths" in our care - and maybe your loved one too!
As a stakeholder, you are in a position to make a significant difference in the lives of our residents. Click the links below to read the rest of the story, see these new chairs in action and donate to Ruth’s Chair campaign.
Thank you for caring.
