Reaching Out Now To Cheer Our Heroes!

Retired military service members and senior citizens at the Souderton Adult Day Care Center, a Catholic Health Care Services program for older adults in Montgomery County, are teaming up with Merck Pharmaceuticals, to make Saint Patrick’s Day cards and pins for current service men and women actively deployed in Afghanistan.

Monday, February 27, 2017
10:30 a.m. – 11:30 p.m.
Souderton Adult Day Care Center
228 Ridge Avenue
Souderton, PA 18964 (Montgomery County)

Souderton Adult Day Care provides support and care in a home-like environment that enables older adults facing physical and cognitive challenges to remain active. Staff and volunteers from the center use creativity to unlock self-expression and artistic abilities that are preserved, despite the increase of cognitive challenges. Each card will help to lift the spirit of a soldier and will use the tagline, “We give back what the disease takes away.”

The center provides nursing services, medical management, nutritionally balanced meals and daily activities such as cooking, gardening, and exercise. The program is tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual and family and is available full and half day, offering respite for caregivers.

Note: Catholic Health Care Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia provides services and housing for seniors, supporting them to remain in their homes and communities. CHCS services for older adults include four senior centers, In-Home Support Program, Certified Geriatric Care Management and a growing portfolio of senior living communities.
