The Foundation for Senior Care, a non-profit organization that serves the needs of seniors and disabled adults in Southern California, has announced the addition of a new member to its Board of Directors. Gail Jones has stepped up into a leadership position within the group, and will help advance the Foundation’s core programs and its central mission—one of compassionate support for older community members as well as their family members.
“I am honored to be asked into this significant role within The Foundation for Senior Care, a community organization that I have long admired,” Jones said. “I know how difficult it is for families to cope with memory loss, dementia or simply the effects of the aging process. The Foundation for Senior Care seeks to provide the hope and help that families and caregivers need to address these challenges, and I look forward to promoting this important work.”
Jones’ role on the Board will allow her to have hands-on leadership with each of the Foundation for Senior Care’s core services. The most popular of these is The Club, an adult day-care that provides a safe place for older and disabled adults to come for fun, relaxation and social interaction.
“We provide a safe haven for older adults and a respite for their family members,” Jones said. “It’s a thrill for me to see how much our ‘regulars’ look forward to their time at The Club.”
Other core initiatives from The Foundation for Senior Care include transportation services, such as van rides to and from medical appointments, grocery stores, and of course, The Club. The Foundation for Senior Care also offers, Senior Advocacy program that empowers seniors that are living independently and a Computer Learning Center that allows seniors to learn how to use their phones, computers and the Internet.
Rachel Mason, Executive Director of the Foundation for Senior Care, believes Jones’ addition to the Board underscores a key fact about how the Foundation works.
“We are a non-profit organization, and we depend on donations—not just of money, but also of time and talent,” Mason said. “We need people to serve in different capacities, including on the Board of Directors, though other volunteer positions are available throughout The Foundation for Senior Care. We’re always excited when talented and passionate people like Gail answer the call to service.”
