Recognizing the Needs of Cherokee County Senior Residents

Facing tough choices like food or medicine, seniors forego necessary medical care to make it to the next day. Utility bills remain unpaid and many have no air conditioning in the summer or heat in the winter if they have a place to live at all.

There are many stories to tell.

“Ted”, a recent amputee with no immediate family, was confined to his wheelchair inaccessible house and resorted to calling the fire department to rescue him in order leave the premises for care.

“Sally”, who is incontinent, can’t even afford toilet paper.

“Jim” and his wife could no longer afford the rent and were displaced on a Friday afternoon with $30 to their names and nowhere to go for the night.

Your help has provided hope in each of these cases but the need for others remains.
