A key component of aging well is "aging in place," which incidentally saves billions of dollars that might otherwise be spent on institutional care. For over 40 years, Iona Senior Services has provided the support that makes this possible, enabling older people – whose numbers are greater now than at any time in history – to stay (and thrive) in their own homes. Of Iona’s clients, 80% are financially insecure, nearly 70% are all alone, and many have difficulty shopping, preparing meals, managing money, doing housework, and taking medication. So Iona offers a full range of services: adult day programs for some, coordination of in-home and out-of-home services for others; community programs like group meals, fitness classes, visual art and creative writing courses, and recreational activities that promote a healthy lifestyle; and meal delivery and volunteer companions for those who are homebound. The Client Care Fund supports seniors whose families can't afford even the most modest fees. Someone's mother, someone's father: your support can make the difference.
