"Aurora's caregivers and volunteers are providing a valuable service that is not only good for the environment, it is good for our residents," said state Rep. Jason Fields of Milwaukee. He intends to participate in his community.
The residents who are benefiting from this extra help include:
- A couple in their 80's. The husband suffers from Alzheimer's disease and the grandmother has been diagnosed with dementia.
- A resident who is undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer.
- A 71-year old resident who has no family to help her with yard work.
- A 98-year old woman whose daughter is very ill and unable to help around the house.
"I'm volunteering for Aurora Good Neighbor Day Homestyle because it is a wonderful opportunity to lend a hand to someone needing a little extra help. I'm giving a few hours of my time to take care of a patient's home while they focus on healing," said Elizabeth Clarke, an Aurora caregiver. "This is also a great chance to connect with the community where I live and work and help improve the environment around me."
Sponsors of the Aurora Good Neighbor Day Homestyle include WW Grainger, Bradley Center, Travel Leaders in Hales Corners & Oak Creek, Pitt Plastics, Inc., and San-A-Care.
"As a not-for-profit health system, we're especially grateful to the companies and organizations that teamed with us through their sponsorship of the day," Welch said.
