Wesley Manor Receives $77,700 Good Samaritan Grant
Wesley Manor was delighted to receive a $77,700 grant this summer from the Good Samaritan Foundation. This generous gift, coupled with the $150,000 grant from the Good Samaritan Foundation in 2008, will allow us to complete the expansion and enhancement of the Dr. Kenneth C. Peters Wing, serving the needs of late stage Alzheimer’s and dementia residents in our Health Care Center.
For more than forty-six years, Wesley Manor has been dedicated to providing excellent care to Louisville area seniors. To fulfill our mission of caring for seniors and their families, we must rely heavily on philanthropic partnerships with individuals and organizations such as the Good Samaritan Foundation, Inc.
Though the start of this project was delayed by many months as we awaited approval from local and state authorities, work is now well underway. The interior has been completed and work on the exterior is scheduled to be completed soon. An open house was held November 15, 2009 to showcase these improvements.
These changes will promote a sense of freedom and calm while lessening symptoms of depression in our late-stage Alzheimer’s/dementia dementia residents. In so doing, they will further enhance and safeguard these special residents’ personal dignity and enrich their quality of life.
The project “Late Stage Alzheimer’s Care: Moving from Basic to Enhanced Quality of Life will be financially assisted by the Good Samaritan Foundation, Inc., a ministry of the Kentucky Conference of the United Methodist Church.
