On behalf of the DuPage Care Center Foundation, I want to wish everyone a great 2022. We have been through much together, and together we can make a difference in the world we live in.
The outpouring of love from friends, donors and the business community has been felt for the Foundation throughout 2021. Your financial support has provided and continues to enhance and expand quality–of-life programs and services for the Residents
Your Generosity Has an Impact!
Through you, the Foundation has assisted the DuPage Care Center, especially the Recreation Therapy staff, in the hard work they do to keep Residents engaged during the continuing pandemic.
The Foundation has been able to provide:
- I-pads and pre-programmed radios
- Superior headsets that have given Residents the ability to improve their hearing
- Daily Resident Recreational Therapy programs
- Variety of games, personal celebrations (aides in preventing depression)
- Resident personal supplies
- Upkeep of the beloved Secret Garden
- Music therapy (promotes memory recall & speech communication)
- Art therapy (stimulates cognitive/motor skills & creativity)
- Aides to support and direct programs.
This list is long and continues to grow but we will meet the demands because of our faith in our supporters. Through ongoing communication, we share stories of residents, their needs, and celebrations; the skilled nurses, doctors, CNAs, and staff who make sure they are kept healthy and safe. There continues to be new ways to provide life-enhancing programs, services, and equipment for our Residents, which are constantly addressed.
Thank you for supporting these projects!
