RMCF is doing even more than ever before! Where else can those without adequate financial or insurance resources turn to ensure that they are able to receive essential health care services? Such a needed service for the most vulnerable in our communities!
RMC Foundation has been a charitable health care agency for years, the addition of their new volunteer program has put them over the top in helping the community!
They have been a great help in providing needed care for folks who would otherwise go without essential services.
A couple of months ago, I saw an article in a local paper regarding the work RMCF was doing helping elderly and handicapped people with home repairs that these people were no longer capable of doing for themselves. I have worked in construction for over 55 years. Having recently retired, I want to stay active and feel that using my skills to help what I consider an underserved portion of our community would be good for me and good for our community. I sent an email to Dede Fluette of RMCF offering my services. Dede responded back to me that same day. I met with Dede and Joel Warren, RMCF volunteer coordinator, a few days later. I learned that Joel is an Americor Volunteer, a knowledge that further made me feel good about helping. Both Joel and Dede were obviously dedicated to their work and are fine people. I readily joined with them as a volunteer. Since that time I have performed home repairs for six different elderly widows and one elderly lady whose husband suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm. These women have ranged in age from late 70's to 92 years old. They are ALL very grateful for the help. Each has been the kind of person who has been independent all their life and they continue to take care of their homes as best they can. To fix their plumbing, repair their roof, trim tree branches that may damage roofing, replace an unsafe porch and stair, clean rain gutters, fix broken sprinklers and make home safety inspections has been very rewarding to me and helpful to these fine people who simply can't do these things for themselves. All have been tremendously grateful and appreciative. It simply makes a guy feel good. (Not to mention the occasional bag of vegetables from a small garden that some insist I take home with me.) RMCF is a fine organization that I am very happy to serve with. Ray Andrus 801-435-4040. firstname.lastname@example.org
Rocky Mountain Care Foundation has helped me out on two occasions. In one instance they assisted one of my clients purchase medication that he could not afford, but was necessary to his well being. Rocky Mountain Care Foundation also assisted us to help a client return to his home out of the country so that he could pass away with his family. What an amazing service!
I do not have a personal experience with RMCF actually helping me...but, because I have heard so many wonderful things about RMCF and the loving, helpful ways they help so many people, I became a donor. I decided that it was one way I could really help people in need. The money goes directly to the programs they run. And the personal stories I have had related to me demonstrate just how much good an outfit like RMCF!! Keep up the good work! Brenda
Rocky Mountain Foundation will treat you like family!
RMC foundation is a wonderful resource to patients and families in need. As a social worker, I have utilized them many times and appreciate all they do for our community.
I have experienced how a volunteer can bring joy, comfort and friendship to a patient. From just being a friend, cutting someone's hair or listening and writing a life story for someone in the last weeks of their life, volunteers make a huge diffference in someone's life. Rocky Mountain volunteers are dedicated, caring, loving and extra special people. They give a whole new meaning to "compassion". I am grateful for my affiliation with the Rocky Mountain Care Foundation.
Rocky Mountain Care Foundation is a wonderful organization!!! I can not say enough good about them. I lost the hearing in my left ear in 2011 due to a devistating bout of bacterial meningitis. The hospital that I was in referred me to their audiology department where they were conducting clinical trials of a brand new hearing system for Single Sided Deafness (SSD). The only catch to doing it was there was a cost associated with it. I had not been able to work in 8 months due to illness, and money was in such short supply that I figured I would never be able to get this hearing system. My physical therapist was at a Rocky Mountain Care facility and told me about the foundation. The foundation was able to help me get this hearing system which has given me the confidence I once had prior to my hearing loss. I COMPLETELY RECCOMMEND THIS FOUNDATION!!
I have personally seen the Rocky Mountain Care foundation go above and beyond with helping patient and families. At the most critical time, and when the family had given up hope, the foundation came through and offered some amazing support which allowed the patient to comfortablly pass away in their own home. It was amazing!!!
