Moving Forward Together

Dear Friends,

Smiley face split between 2 handsResident giving peace sign

As we continue into the summer months, our theme for this year is “Moving Forward Together“. Just completing our 2021 Spring Appeal, we thank our stakeholders for moving forward with us in our mission to enhance and expand quality-of life program and services for the DPCC residents. Whether you are an individual donor or a business sponsor, we can continue supporting the Recreational Therapy, Speech Therapy, and the Art Therapy Departments. Residents depend on these programs as well as other services and supplies that are financially supported by the foundation.

If you are just learning about the DPCC Foundation, we encourage you to view the various areas of this website to learn about our history and many projects we have undertaken that support the residents though the years. Their needs are constant and so is our mission.

The generosity extended to the DuPage Care Center by our supporters through the years has made possible technological improvements that have greatly improved resident/family/staff communication; continued development in the Secret Garden and surrounding outdoor spaces; resident birthday and holiday parties; new furnishings for resident gathering areas; resident personal hygiene supplies and so many activities and programs vital to improving the quality of life for our residents. Check the full list.

Your Generosity Has an Impact!

New this year is the GEM (Giving Every Month) Patron Program, which provides a convenient way to donate to the center and helps to ensure the sustainability of services and activities for the residents, by enabling participants to sign up once for an automatic monthly payment to the Centre. You will ensure resident program and service sustainability 24/7. What an uplifting feeling knowing that your dollars are always at work.

One of the primary goals of this year is the planning of our family Palliative/Hospice rooms, which will support families during this critical time in the lives of their loved ones. More information will be available in the coming months.

The return of flowers, foliage, and birdsong are welcome signs in the resident Secret Garden, reminding all of us of new energy and new beginnings. I am grateful for the creativity and passion of the Foundation Board, Care Center staff, our dedicated volunteers, and you, our donors.
