CORONAVIRUS EMERGENCY FUND
Gifts to this Fund will help with the following.
· Purchase protective equipment so that residents and team members stay safe
· Cover unexpected expenses because we’re having to pay for services that residents used to volunteer for – before the quarantine
· Erase the shortfall from lost income; we’ve emptied one of our Healthcare Houses to prepare to safely segregate and serve COVID-19 patients or those with symptoms, costing us $35,000 every week. Click HERE to make your donation.
This fund helps meet the needs of residents whose financial resources are insufficient to cover the cost of personal care services or healthcare services. Click HERE to donate to the Caring Fund.
There are often a significant number of residents in personal care and health care who, through no fault of their own, have outlived their financial resources and are no longer able to pay the full cost of their care. Even with governmental assistance and paying what they can, there is currently an average gap of $171 each day per person.
The Caring Fund was created in 1993 through the advocacy of Francis and Elsie Harvey who were Landis Homes residents since 1985. As Francis was visiting many residents, playing his harmonica and spreading good cheer, he surmised that some of his friends were outliving their financial resources, often near the end of their lives. He began to advocate for a way to partner with Landis Homes who was and is committed to providing continuing care. Francis and Elsie were the first contributors to the Caring Fund. Many Friends of Landis Homes have contributed regularly to give others peace of mind and assist in providing benevolent care.
Caring Endowment Fund
The Caring Endowment Fund was created in 2002. The interest earned on the principal is used to help cover the cost of benevolent care while the principal remains intact. This fund continues providing for the residents in the future.
