The Heart of Kentucky United Way annual campaign is under way, and I want to take a moment to thank those of you who contribute to the United Way. Because of your support, the United Way is able to help fund the Senior Companion Program.
Many frail, elderly residents in Boyle, Lincoln and Garrard counties would be in nursing homes today were it not for their Senior Companions. The Senior Companion volunteers ensure that the elderly receive nutritious meals, help them around the house and make sure they are safe and comfortable so family members can work.
Words cannot express the gratitude of those who receive the help they need to remain in their own homes and grow old with grace and dignity. On behalf of the Senior Companion Program, thank you for making this community a wonderful place to grow up in, and a wonderful place to grow old in.
