It's a sad reality that some families experience financial difficulty and are not able to get the level of home medical care they need.
Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2010
Professional HealthCare, a leading provider of home nursing, rehabilitation therapy, hospice care, and non-medical caregiver services in four western states, has established The Madrone Foundation to help patients in need. It is a 501c3 non-profit foundation that accepts donations from family members, friends, company employees, and others who wish to support its mission. The foundation raises, manages, and disburses charitable funds to enable those less fortunate to access compassionate, quality care.
The foundation’s name is derived from the Pacific Madrone, a beautiful tree native to the West Coast whose wood is sought for its heating capabilities since it burns long and hot. “It’s a meaningful symbol of the warmth and compassion that the foundation represents,” explains John Griscavage, CEO. “It’s a sad reality that some families experience financial difficulty and are not able to get the level of home medical care that they need. We are proud to provide a way to extend financial assistance in some of these situations.”
No administrative fees are diverted from contributions. 100 percent of gifts to the foundation support comfort and care for those in need. Donations can be made to The Madrone Foundation and mailed to Professional Healthcare, 925 Ygnacio Valley Rd., Suite 101, Walnut Creek, CA 94596.
