Generosity in Action
St. Andrew’s Village is fortunate to have residents, families, volunteers and staff who are committed to ensuring and enhancing the quality of life for all residents at every level of service – now and in the future.
Over the years gifts to St. Andrew’s Village have been as varied as the people we serve and have been made directly by individuals. The recently completed therapy clinic is part of a four-phase renovation program designed to visually and functionally enhance the rehabilitation area. Residents and friends of St. Andrew’s have united to make this vision a reality.
In addition, gifts to the St. Andrew’s Village Fund help to provide charitable care to those residents who have outlived their personal financial resources. No one has ever been asked to leave the Presbyterian Senior Living system of care because they had outlived their resources. This means if a person does not divest or give away assets, we have an unwavering history of keeping our commitment to the people we serve. In fact, St. Andrew’s Village provided over $1 million dollars of uncompensated care in 2010.
If you or a loved one have benefited in any way from our services, we invite you to consider extending the gift of quality care and quality of life in any number of ways.
