We Rise By Lifting Others

Dear Friends,


As we move into 2022, join us as “We Rise By Lifting Others”. We continually strive to create donor and community business partnerships that will enhance and expand quality-of-life programs and services for our residents. Through these partnership’s we support the resident’s daily needs.

Throughout the years, the outpouring of love from friends, donors and the business community has made an impact to over 300+ residents. Many with cognitive, physical, medically complex and developmental disabilities. Most have little to no financial resources.

Your financial support is critical to the many who call the Care Center home and their families who feel the Care Center is a caring and superior medical facility. Together we can rise by lifting others. Make a difference today, tomorrow and every day. Once received your donation goes to work immediately and stays here in the Care Center in DuPage community.

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!
