Providing help and hope for older adults in need
WE PROVIDE HELP
in a variety of personal and practical ways through our volunteers and team members as well as our increasing network of resources. In Romania, we come alongside local partners to provide help in various ways for previously homeless older adults. In NC, we work to help those aging alone remain safe and loved in their own homes for as long as possible. Occupational therapy led assessments allow us to make minor home modifications and provide adaptive equipment as necessary. Our monthly pantry program eliminates the need for choosing between groceries and medication for many of our clients.
WE PROVIDE HOPE
simply by being a listening ear, a helping hand, and by sharing the hope we have found through our faith in Jesus Christ. Through our buddy program, wellness checks, and adapted tablets we seek to lighten the staggering depression and isolation that comes with aging alone.
WHERE WE SERVE
We are currently serving older adults in need in Western Romania as well as Cabarrus and Rowan Counties of North Carolina in the U.S.
WHY “ELDER ORPHAN CARE”?
Why “Elder” Orphan Care?
The world’s older population continues to grow at an unprecedented rate.
By 2020, for the first time in recorded history, people over 65 will outnumber children.
Why Elder “Orphan” Care?
The word “orphan” describes a person without protective covering.
Although often associated with children who have no parents, orphans can be any age.
Why Elder Orphan “Care”?
Our faith compels us to care! “Love your neighbor as yourself,” (Matthew 22:39).
DO NOT CAST ME AWAY WHEN I AM OLD;
DO NOT FORSAKE ME WHEN MY STRENGTH IS GONE.
