With your help, the Alliance for Arlington Senior Programs (AASP) will work with the Arlington 55+ Center Advisory Committees to reduce social isolation by using the funds for outreach and new programs to increase the Arlington County 55+ membership.
Expand the success of the intergenerational Walking School Bus pilot at Arlington's Oakridge Elementary School to all 24 Arlington Public School elementary schools. Unlike a traditional Walking School Bus, our "bus" had Arlington seniors walking with students to school, with each getting to know the other better along the way.
Older adults need a touchpoint in their community to go to for information — a knowledgeable source that is friendly, open, and trustworthy. With your support, Arlington Neighborhood Village will work with the County, Marymount University, nonprofits, and community-based organizations to recruit, train, and manage a diverse group of at least 25 Senior Ambassadors.
Arlington Thrive has a longstanding partnership with Arlington Free Clinic to cover dental costs for their clients. This grant would allow Arlington Thrive to continue this essential service for senior members of our community who may not have alternatives to secure much-needed healthcare.
Arlington Capital Caring Health (CCH) is proud to celebrate its 45th anniversary of providing the highest quality and compassion-based advanced illness, and end-of-life care to patients of all ages, regardless of their ability to pay. CCH Volunteers provide respite for weary caregivers, companionship to patients, and sit vigil with patients so no one dies alone.
Culpepper Garden's assisted-living program serves approximately 90 very low-income seniors per year. Without the support that Culpepper Garden provides, many of the residents served would have very few options for quality long-term care due to their limited incomes. With your help, we can ensure older adults receive the care and social interactions that significantly enhance their quality of life.
Goodwin Hospice wants to support older adults and their loved ones through enhanced services that benefit their patients the most. They provide areas of support that allow patients to spend time with those they love and less time with the burdens of logistical details such as transportation, medication delivery, or a loved one flying across the country to visit them.
Healwell has been providing massage therapy in DC area hospitals, clinics, and medical facilities since 2010 and is looking forward to bringing clinically appropriate, adapted touch to the residents of Culpepper Garden. The goal of this program will be to increase comfort and to decrease social isolation.
PathForward has proactively hired a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) to accompany their Mobile Medical Program that provides services to people living on the streets of Arlington. The LCSW compassionately identifies experiences that lead to cognitive impairment and, at times, late onset of mental illness such as schizophrenia. PathForward's LCSW, Nurse Practitioner, and Registered Nurse collaborate to provide older adults with judgement-free, patient-centered care.
Nearly 80% of older adults would prefer to stay in their current home as long as possible, but many low-income adults can't afford necessary repairs and modifications to safely age in place. Rebuilding Together Arlington/ Fairfax/ Falls Church provides critical home repairs and modifications at no cost to low-income homeowners, while also piloting a program to provide accessibility modifications for low-income renters.
The Centenarians Today project aims to spotlight the life journey and contributions of local older adults by capturing stories through a short podcast and video series. Seabury's project team will curate the stories and disseminate them through local institutions. The team will document the impact of the project to connect older adults to local resources and inspire hope and resiliency for those who reach 100 years of age in the not-so-distant future.
The Saint Agnes community has a long history of caring for the needy, the infirmed, and the elderly. They have many eager volunteers ready to answer the calling of charitable programs for Arlington. The areas of aid and service that they deliver for the elderly community of Arlington include meals, transportation, financial aid, and companionship.
