Local Nonprofit Addresses Church Women’s Group About Aging In Place

Wellington Cares board members spoke at the Council of Catholic Women’s monthly meeting at Our Lady Queen of the Apostles Church in March.

Kathy Foster, executive director of Wellington Cares, and board member Daniel Terner explained that the organization helps seniors living in Wellington age in place.

Gayle Paul, president of the Council of Catholic Women, introduced Foster by telling her personal experience with Wellington Cares. “My mom was in an accident and couldn’t drive. Although I was able to do most things for her, I needed help. Wellington Cares was able to help my mom when I couldn’t be there,” Paul said.

Foster explained the services that the organization provides so seniors can remain in their homes. “I needed help with my aging parents when they moved here,” she said. “After researching various options I came across a NORC.”

Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities empowers persons 65 and older to be in control of their own lives by offering short-term services when a little help is needed to maintain independence. For more information, call (561) 568-8818 or visit www.wellingtoncaresorg.com.
