September: Message from the President- Stephen B. McPherson | Healthcare to Homecare to Senior Living

September 3, 2014

Our 22nd Masonicare Golf Classic was August 19, a day that had to be one of the most glorious this summer. Even if you played miserably, you could take solace in the beautiful weather we were blessed with. This annual event is The Masonic Charity Foundation’s signature fundraiser and is made possible thanks to generous sponsors, donors, staff and volunteers.

I want to recognize that “support” for Masonicare comes in many forms. We are extremely fortunate to have a large number of volunteers at our facilities in Wallingford and Newtown and in our hospice program at Masonicare Home Health & Hopsice. These individuals truly make a difference in the lives of the patients and residents they interact with, and help us in our mission to deliver the highest quality care.

One volunteer program that you may not know about is our Lay Training in Geriatric Ministry at Masonicare Health Center. Upon completing a training program, these volunteers give four hours a week of pastoral ministry at the Health Center.

Another way we receive “support” is when someone recommends a Masonicare service to a friend or family member. Do you know someone who is having surgery and might need rehab or home care afterward? You can recommend us for their follow-up care. Have you ever had the frustrating experience of waiting for hours in an Emergency Room? The Acute Care Hospital at Masonicare Health Center admits seniors with a range of acute diagnoses with no wait time as long as there is a physician referral. We also have a wonderful hospice and palliative care program that receives a lot of word-of-mouth endorsement. Information on any of our services can be obtained from our HelpLine, 888-679-9997.

Whether you volunteer for us, have remembered us in your will or just put in a good word, please know we are deeply grateful. Together, this lets us “help, aid and assist” as our founding fathers envisioned.​
