Examples of monthly assistance include:

“I am writing to thank you for the assistance you are giving my mother. As I was thinking of how I could best express my gratitude, I had to conclude that there just are no words which can truly express the immensity of the gratitude I feel. Your help is the most generous, kind, thoughtful gift my family has ever received.”
“You were there when emergencies arose, such as when dental work was needed, and so much more. The visits from case managers and staff were welcomed interactions that helped to make my parents feel valued and connected to something larger, which was so important to them as their world grew smaller.
I remember my father once telling my mother that she didn’t need to worry about their future. What a blessing it was for them to know that all of you were there for them. We will be ever grateful for the work of the Masonic Home on behalf of our parents. Thank you all so very much for your role in making their lives better.”
“Just celebrated my 90th birthday. Thank you for everything you do for me. I appreciate it more than I can say.”
The compassion shown in countless ways enabled my parents to live their lives with dignity and security.
