To Whom It may Concern:
I am a mother of two living in New York City who is passionate about assisting the elderly in living a life of physical, emotional, and financial well-being. I work as a home aid / caregiver for the elderly. I’ve been working as a home aid for approximately 6 years, caring for the elderly, and I’ve begun to comprehend their needs. My ambition is to open my own adult day care center where the elderly can come and enjoy their lives. I want to provide shelter for them regardless of the weather outside. I want them to be at ease amid the scorching heat and subzero conditions.
Frequently, the elderly are left at home alone, with no environment that promotes their physical and emotional well-being. The majority of the time, the elderly are socially isolated since they have no offspring, or if they do have children, their children may have their own life commitments (e.g., employment, family). I want to create an environment where elderly can come in and gossip all day, play games, interact socially with one another, tell tales, read books, and watch TV without having to worry about anything. I also want to reassure the children of the elderly that their parents are in good hands and are being cared for. Studies indicate that older adults that participate in hobbies and social activities are less likely to develop diseases like strokes, heart disease or dementias. I want to provide this social and emotional support to the elderly.
Nutrition is a significant component in determining one’s quality of life. Many elderly face financial difficulties and struggle to put meals on the table three times a day. My objective will be to meet their dietary needs at my day care by serving breakfast and lunch.
My challenge is that I do not have the funds to build such an institution to assist the elderly. A excellent home to care for the elderly costs between $350,000 and $450,000. I need this financial aid to get started on this enterprise, and I want to have your support along the way. If you have any connection to my thoughts, or if you have parents or the elderly who need or want a setting like this for their social and emotional well-being, please support my dream! Thank you so much for your much-needed assistance.
