Cassandra Brocchieri

It is my honor to be a GEM Patron for the DuPage Care Center. Giving every month is a small way I can help those who need and deserve high quality care the most.

My grandmother, Nana, is a resident and she is my hero. There is not a memory I have from childhood that does not include her. The Center is the best place Nana can be right now, and I am so grateful for that. I have great faith in the fantastic staff, volunteers, and other health care professionals who ensure that Nana is well taken care of and happy. The Care Center does a phenomenal job at providing engaging programming for their residents, allowing for interaction, stimulation, and socialization that does not commonly occur in other care facilities.

Even through a pandemic, and all the obstacles presented by COVID19, the workers The Care Center have gone beyond to ensure that the residents are safe and cared for. I cannot adequately express how appreciative my family and I are for the video calls we have with Nana. While it is not the same as hugging her, I look forward to seeing her face through a screen every time I can. I give to The Care Center because my Nana always took care of me, and now I can be a part of taking care of her. I am proud to be a GEM and I am inspired by the work done by all at The Center.

The Kliebhan Family

We are very happy to be the first to donate to Giving Every Month (GEM) initiative for the DuPage Care Center Foundation. Christine and I have long ties to the Center from my Grandmother, father and now Christine’s mom, my Mother-In-Law or as our kids call her, Mimi, a resident for 3 years.

The Center is truly a magical place filled with warmth, compassion, and love. It is home to over 310 residents, the amazing caregivers, and other staff, working in every role imaginable to make sure the Care Center operates to the best of its abilities.

We love as a family, to hear of all the wonderful things that Mimi does to keep herself busy. Her favorite is the beautiful outdoor garden and education center, musical entertainment, bingo and of course the many friends that she has made while living at the Center. Even with the difficult challenges that has presented itself, via Covid-19, the staff still goes above and beyond with the care they give and the great ideas the Recreation Team does daily to entertain the residents, just amazes us!

Because of our love for the Care Center, and the staff that cares for our loved ones, we felt strongly about giving a monthly donation to continue the wonderful events, outings, programs that the Care Center provides for our family member.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
