Mothers and Caregivers: Cultivating Love

A Caregiver is called to take care of problems, keep hope alive, and cultivate an attitude of optimism. Caregivers always look at each person as precious and meaningful, capable of reaching great potential.

Help Cultivate The “Garden”

Who are the special caregivers in your life who have made an impact? For Mother’s Day, help us honor your mother or other mentors in your life by adding their names to the Garden Wall now through the end of May.

Caregivers come in all types of persons. Who is the caregiver that has made the biggest impact on your life? Honor your cherished Caregiver by filling the “garden” at St. Louis Center with flowers and butterflies representing the ones you love.

Help cover the cost of benevolent care for the residents of St. Louis Center.

Many of the residents at the center, rely on your help to provide the Benevolent Care that is needed to help him maintain his community-oriented life.

We use the term Benevolent Care often here at St. Louis Center, but what does that mean? The Center receives funding from residents (through social security), their families and/or state and federal sources. However, the cost of care exceeds those reimbursements by $3,000 to $5,000 a month per resident, depending on their level of need. St. Louis Center must raise Benevolent Care funds to cover that gap. Those funds provide for direct care workers who provide for residents’ daily needs, shelter, clothing, food, and things like toiletries and supplies.

Benevolent Care donations are tax deductible and help St. Louis Center provide a dynamic and engaged life for its 64 residents each day. You can learn more about Benevolent Care at St. Louis Center here.
