Room For a Little Bit
Organized by: Marian Beck
Established in August of 2014, our first project, "Room for a Little Bit" (http://www.roomforalittlebit.com/) has a mission to provide much-needed care to those who cannot afford it. Our goal is to fund a room in a very special residential care home for people with memory loss. My mother, Jean (or Little Bit as she is fondly known) has dementia/Alzheimers and is very fortunate to live in this amazing place called Eason House.
Eason House, run by A Place to Call My Home, is a small (5 resident) assisted living home that provides uniquely personalized care for those with memory loss - in a very homelike setting. It has become her home, but we're running out of funds to allow her to stay there.
It is our sincere wish to help Mom (Little Bit) and others in the same position stay in their homes, surrounded by those who love them and where they feel safe. We also want to get the word out about alternatives to large-scale nursing facilities.
