I am both a board member of Big Sky Senior Services and a past recipient of services. I was off my feet for two months following surgery and was visited by an RN and a nursing student. The CNA was there to help me shower, shop for my groceries and keep my house clean. I couldn't have managed without the services! Having been on the board since 2001, I know how hard we work to gather funding so that we can provide services on a sliding fee sacal to keep even indigent seniors in their homes. Keeping elders in their homes is far more cost effective than housing them in nursing homes. It provides families peace of mind to know their loved one is safe in familiar surroundings. The staff is of the highest caliber and exhibits professionalism and compassion. The work in preventing elder abuse has received national attention with annual conferences to educate those in the community to potential risks to the elderly. This is an organization well worth supporting!
