Aging in Place 

Research indicates that an overwhelmng number of seniors, including 87% of disabled seniors, want to receive their long-term care services (funded by Medicaid/Medicare) "in place", meaning in their own home or other independent living arrangements as opposed to assisted living or nursing facilities.  For these individuals, "Bread for Life...." strives to bring the marketplace to them by providing an easily accessible senior-friendly venue where seniors or designated helpers can pick up and home deliver program products as needed. OR...Ministry participants are welcome to pick up their own food and sundry items with the help of warm hearted and well-trained volunteers who provide positive social interaction and hospitality.
