Elder ElfWe help with the basics throughout the year — food, a bath, trips to the doctor. Many seniors on very low fixed incomes have nothing to spare to celebrate the holidays. Elder Care Services hopes to brighten their holidays with our Elder Elf Program. Our care managers have identified those clients in need this holiday season. Their “Wish List” requests are often heartbreakingly modest — slippers, a sweater, or a doll for a grandchild.

If you're interested in adopting one of our clients for the Holidays call (850) 245-5907 or Email Ed Gines, Senior Solutions Specialist at ginese@ecsbigbend.org.
