This Fund is in honor of our loving Mom who spent the last five years of her life suffering from dementia and other illnesses which rendered her totally disabled. Even though she did not remember our names most of the time we were always greeted with a big smile every time we entered into her presence. We chose to take her into our home and care for her every need. I left my job to become her full time caregiver.
Jennie was my mother-in-law who became my best friend. Because of her I gained a great awareness of compassion, patience and mercy. At the end of her life she became as our child.
During the first months of my caregiving, my eyes were also opened to the similar needs in our community and so Give A Day Foundation came about. I wanted to help bridge the gap with people that were in need in like situations and also wanted to help non-profit organizations whose mission was to help people in the community.
Give A Day Foundation is a volunteer center, where people can join and help us address some of those needs in our community.
The Jennie Robert Memorial funds will be used to help people who choose to care for their loved ones in their home through our Assist at Home Program. The “Assist at Home Projects" are made up of volunteers who go to homes and assist with chores that the in-home person has trouble completing. We are not licensed contractors, just volunteers who are willing to help with some of the basic needs. These could be things such as changing light bulbs, changing batteries in smoke alarms, basic cleaning around the house basic lawn care like cutting grass and trimming shrubs. We also help with grocery shopping and transportation to doctors appointments.
