Why Not Me? Join our board.
by Kathryn Beaumont, ISR Board Vice President
Helping my 80-year-old widowed mother locate the help and resources she needed wasn’t easy. Without a single place to turn to, finding information was confusing and frustrating. I thought, someone ought to do something. Then I realized, why not me? I can be that someone. So, I joined the Island Senior Resources Board to help others like my mother and me avoid feeling lost and alone in getting help. What a satisfying journey it has been!
Our board is passionate about ensuring our island communities are emotionally, socially, and physically supportive places for seniors and disabled adults and their caregivers. We provide leadership and strategic planning for the future. We see first-hand how our committed and compassionate staff skillfully connects seniors with meals, medical transportation and equipment, caregiving help, and other resources so they can live comfortably in their homes. This work transforms and enriches their lives — and ours as well.
The time will come when I can’t do everything for myself. Maybe that’s true for you or your aging parents, too. Do you have legal, financial, fundraising, or nonprofit board experience? Do you have the desire to enhance the well-being of seniors, adults with disabilities, and caregivers in our community? Join us to ensure we all have the resources we’ll need as we age. If you’re thinking someone ought to do something, as I did, ask yourself, “Why not me?” Join me on the Island Senior Resources Board.
