Your gracious support takes Edward and Vicenta to the doctor

It is a small miracle that Edward is alive.Edward and Vicenta get to doctor appointments with the help of the Transportation Plus Program.

At age 85, he suffers from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), diabetes and high blood pressure. Nevertheless, Edward has a positive attitude. He appears remarkably healthy when he is not dragging around the oxygen tank.

Luckily, donors like you help get low-income seniors like Edward to doctor appointments and other critical trips.

“This is a program of care and love because we feel cared for and that we are loved,” says Vicenta.

The Transportation Plus driver helps Edward in and out of the car, gets a wheelchair at the medical building, carries the oxygen tank, and brings him right to the doctor’s office.

After the appointment, the driver is in the waiting room, ready to assist Edward and take him home.

“We are glad that there are organizations and people who are kind-hearted and care for people like us … people who need help … and they are here to help us!” – Vicenta, Eskaton Transportation Plus Program client.

Edward is impressed by how caring the drivers are. “They strengthen our feelings,” remarks Edward. They put them at ease and talk to them as if they are family.

“We are glad that there are organizations and people who are kind-hearted and care for people like us … people who need help … and they are here to help us!” exclaims Vicenta.

With support from the City of Roseville and the Sacramento Region Community Foundation, Eskaton Foundation is expanding the Transportation Plus Program reach in Placer County. Read more.

What do you love about music?

Vera, living with dementia, replies, “The melody. I love to sing and listen. I used to sing in Europe while I worked. It’s a good feeling. Makes life happier and reminisce precious moments.”

Thanks to you, our donors, Eskaton Foundation expanded the Therapeutic Music program by bringing Music Partners in Healthcare musicians to six Eskaton memory care programs in the Sacramento area.

Jane Young, activity director at Eskaton Village Placerville, thinks it is an awesome program. “Judy (harpist) and Michael (guitarist) engaged with our residents in different forms like movement, conversation and gentle touch. They both know our residents by name and treat them with honor, dignity and respect.”
