Help Low-Income Vulnerable & Disabled Elderly live and die in the comfort of their own homes surrounded by loved ones by underwriting full scholarships for 24/7 in-home care.   With severe funding cuts, publicly-funded chore worker services for needy seniors hasn't existed for many years.   Funded live-in care has never existed.   Needy seniors are forced into nursing homes as a result.Statistics prove that the majority of elderly who live in their own homes survive on average 2-5 years longer than if they live in a nursing home.  Approximately 60% of elderly seniors living in nursing homes die within the first year.  By charging seniors who can afford to pay the full rate of $12,000 to $15,000/mo. for live-in/in-home care by professional caregivers, all revenue will underwrite scholarships for low-income seniors.  The founder has been a nonprofit fundraiser for decades & has started nonprofits remotely in 4 states for others (please contact us for fundraising qualifications).We need $9,323 to:  secure our 501(c)3 to guarantee tax-deductible donations; write grants; secure our state licenses; design a website to promote services through digital marketing to senior centers and other appropriate services; enroll doctors, social workers & hospitals for senior referral; and, recruit caregivers through Seattle/King County Area Agency on Aging through our remote office. Millions of seniors own or rent their own homes/apartments but are forced into nursing homes without long-term care insurance.  Many seniors become homeless.  After decades of living in their own home & being surrounded by memories, their new “home” becomes a 200 sq. ft room with a single bed, nightstand, dresser & a few boxes of photos & memories, amidst ubiquitous hospital odors and no privacy.  Seniors work their entire lives raising children & making the world a better place only to be forgotten when it’s decided they are no longer valuable & productive citizens.Many seniors die alone in a small nursing home room with little or no time for nursing staff to contact their relatives.
