YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A SENIOR NEAR YOU!
The Foundation for Senior Care is committed to serving the senior population. We are the recognized leader in providing programs and resources for seniors enabling them to enhance their well-being and give them a more meaningful life!
The Care Van program is a by-donation service providing door to door transportation for seniors and the disabled to medical appointments, physical therapy, pharmacies, grocery stores and more. The Care Vans run Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Reservations must be made 48 hours in advance; medical appointments take priority. The Expanded Rides Program is offered by the Foundation for Senior Care. Volunteer drivers will use their own vehicles to transport clients to and from out of town medical appointments, originating in Fallbrook. All of the volunteer drivers are screened and background checked.
Senior Care Advocate
Our Care Advocates make hundreds of visits to seniors in their homes assisting them with resources and referrals as they face health and aging challenges. The Care Advocates often serve as the clients’ campaigner when utilizing health benefits, researching resources, and interfacing with websites or dealing with automated systems. Last year our Care Advocates provided over 2,100 points of contact, including 270 home safety visits. The Senior Care Advocate program also works to educate the public through outreach talks with service clubs, Senior Centers, Retirement Residences and other senior events/avenues to raise awareness of the challenges is problem.
Fallbrook Adult Day Care Center, “The Club”
“The Club” is a day program that offers clients a secure social, recreational program designed for seniors and disabled adults that need additional help. The Fallbrook Adult Day Care Center bridges the large care and social gap for thousands of seniors and their caregivers who simply cannot afford or are not ready for more inclusive care options such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities. “The Club” staff specializes in caring for clients with dementia, providing individual care and attention to each client. Interactive activities include art, games, cooking classes, music appreciation, pet therapy, low impact exercises and guest entertainment. “The Club” provides caregivers with a wonderful respite opportunity giving them some downtime to rejuvenate.
Senior Care Computer Learning Center
We have the best volunteers who run the Senior Care Computer Learning Center, and it continues to draw seniors to attend workshops on using an iPad, Skype, Facebook and other social networking sites, internet searches, and much more. The 4-week classes include but are not limited to Beginner Computer, Buying & Selling on the Internet, Digital Photography, Photoshop, and many others. The learning center has 15 volunteers. Every Friday an “Open Lab” is held from 1:00 to 3:00 pm where anyone can come by and get tutored or have their computers fixed. We are excited to have them on board!
The Foundation for Senior Care is always on the lookout for ways to improve our services plus pursue other resources. With the Fallbrook Hospital closing in December of 2014, we saw immediate needs for transportation to surrounding medical centers near Tri-City Medical Center, Palomar Medical center and to Temecula Valley Hospital. We are working with area partners to bring our Care Advocate and Care Van services to additional areas on a full time basis.
