Meet Our Donors
Before coming to a decision about a suitable retirement community I looked at about 12 different places. What I really liked about Frederick Living was that it was clean and pleasant, offered a flexible meal plan and had a variety of activities available. The staff was friendly and there was a chaplain on site to help residents with their spiritual needs. A bonus feature was the rural atmosphere, where I could keep driving longer than if it were in a more urban setting! I am thankful for the privilege of having more than sufficient resources to live in this community of Christian love and caring. However, I am aware of those that have run short of resources through no fault of their own and need our help. I decided that I could make a difference by investing in Frederick Living to allow others to enjoy this wonderful place.
Jay operated a bison farm until she moved into one of our villas. Recently she gave a substantial gift toward the Resident Benevolent Care Fund. Jay wrote, "As seniors face the many physical difficulties of older age, life can become very discouraging. Financial problems only compound the stress." "At Frederick Living the compassionate staff does so much to give comfort to the residents. The benevolent fund alleviates the worries about financial concerns. I want to support any residents who might find themselves in the situation of running short of funds through no fault of their own."
Don & Joan Sullivan
"When I walked in the front door at Frederick Living and saw the beautiful gardens, I could feel the caring!" Having been a social worker in a retirement community Joan can recognize a 'caring' place - and in her view, Frederick Living surely is one. Don participated in a church choir before coming to Frederick so now he enjoys singing in the Frederick Living Chorus. The Sullivans came here mainly because they did not want their children to worry about them. Why do they give to the ministry of Frederick Living? In Joan's words, "Frederick needs to be here, as the caring place that it is, with a wonderful Christian atmosphere."
JOHN AND GLADYS HASSON
The Hassons left a legacy to Frederick Living. They were both residents at Frederick Living for a number of years before first John and then Gladys passed away. They were deeply involved in life at Frederick Living. They loved to volunteer and served as greeters at the Sunday worship service on campus. Gladys also organized the annual geranium sale to benefit the Resident Benevolent Care Fund. John and Gladys both felt that it was important to give of their material blessings to help others in need, so they gave regularly to the Resident Benevolent Care Fund and they included Frederick Living in their will. Through their estate plans they left land adjacent to Frederick Living’s property to the organization to give Frederick Living additional space for future needs. We are so grateful for this thoughtful legacy.
