Donors Like You Ensure Quality Compassionate Care
Each month there is a $600 gap per resident between the actual cost of direct care and the amount Mary Ryder Home is reimbursed by a Resident’s Medicare, Medicaid, or social security/disability coverage. In addition, many indirect costs of care, such as activities and building maintenance, enable us to provide enriching experiences to our Residents but are not covered by insurance or other income sources.
Therefore, your financial support is crucial to Mary Ryder Home’s ability to provide a safe home, compassionate care and a quality life to dozens of senior women each year through our Assisted Living/Residential Care programs and services.
As the population of the United States continues to age, more Senior women than ever before will be struggling in poverty, forced to sacrifice their health because they cannot afford rent, utilities, food and healthcare. Once a medical crisis or accident prevents them from living independently, these Seniors, with incomes near or below the poverty level, have few good long-term care choices and often have nowhere else to turn for help.
