Tis the season for Workplace giving and I would love the opportunity to come to your workplace and tell you about Friend to Friend America and how your donation can make a difference in the quality of life for a senior in your community.
Friend to Friend America Awarded New Grant!
We are excited to announce that we received a grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the state of Washington that will staff one full time person to serve in 3 local nursing homes as a video call liaison to ensure residents can connect with friends and family far and wide. The lucky homes that get to participate in this program for year one are:
- Foss Homes in Seattle
- Judson Park in Des Moines
- Burien Nursing and Rehabilitation in Burien
