More About Our History

Our Work

Laura’s savings were depleted while caring for her husband, and Social Security no longer covers her rent and food. She skipped meals to cover expenses until she met with our Aging & Disabilities staff.

We helped her apply for food benefits, receive Meals on Wheels, and obtain subsidies that waived her Medicare Part B and D premiums. Now she feels safe, eats well, and enjoys new friends thanks to ISR and people who care.

Colin has to choose between heat or paying other bills. His family lives far away, he can’t drive, and his phone is broken. I’m his Meals on Wheels delivery driver and often the only person he sees all week. We share stories from our lives; we’ve become friends. One day Colin needed help. Had I not arrived, he would have had no way to reach anyone. I called ISR which launched the staff into action to get him the help he needed. What would have happened if I hadn’t arrived? Instead, he’s OK this evening because of Meals on Wheels and people who care.

I’m Susan.  I’m deaf, my sight is failing, and I can’t drive anymore.  We get rides from ISR’s Medical Transportation program to essential medical appointments.  Because of this, we don’t have to move into the city and lose our home.

Sarah’s legs are weak so it’s unsafe for her to walk outside her home. She called Island Senior Resources. Our free medical equipment lending library had a scooter for her, but it needed a battery. We called out to the community to donate a battery for the unit, recruited volunteers to build a ramp to the front door, and delivered the scooter. Now Sarah is no longer isolated. She is much more socially active and self-sufficient thanks to ISR and people who care.
