How Can I Help?
Customarily, this is when we make our Spring Appeal seeking your assistance to support the more than 400 older adults living at Asbury Heights, a part of UPMC Senior Communities. Our focus now is protecting the health and well-being of every person we serve during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Because older adults are at high-risk for this virus, critical precautions within our facilities have been implemented to ensure resident safety. With families unable to visit their loved ones, dedicated staff members are going above and beyond to ease fear and anxiety among our residents during this crisis. On a daily basis, new, innovative ways of keeping them safe and engaged are being deployed.
You may ask, “how can I help?”
It is easy to do! Consider being a part of our 2020 Frances Hamilton Society today. Your gift will stay right here at Asbury to support one of the following funds:
- Asbury Heights COVID-19 Resident Support Fund - has been established to assist in providing programs and resources to address unique, emergent needs as it pertains to the physical and social well-being of Asbury residents. Your contribution makes possible the purchase of such things as iPads for virtual visits with children and grandchildren near and far.
Asbury Heights Resident Mary G. is a new user of iPad technology. Recently celebrating her 100th birthday, she was able to video chat with her son, Gary. There were lots of "I love you’s," air kisses, and a few tears. Gary and his family were able to sing Happy Birthday to her during their chat.
- Asbury Heights Benevolent Care Fund - the economic impact the virus has made across the country is enormous, and our seniors are not immune. With the instability of the stock market, financial resources for this population are uncertain. Asbury Heights is committed to carrying on our 111-year tradition of caring of our residents who have outlived their resources and can no longer pay privately for their care and accommodations.
If you would like to make a gift, please utilize the secure online giving form listed below. Every gift, large or small will make a difference! Thank you for your consideration.
A contribution to Asbury Foundation by a Resident, Resident Family/Friend, Employee, and/or Vendor is not a condition of admission, continued stay, employment, and/or continued business relationship.
