“What am I going to do? Mom is coming to live with me and I have to go to work everyday. I can’t leave her here alone, but we can’t afford to pay for someone to come here and stay with her all day, either."
Is this person you? Or someone you know? She could be any one of the 1,000’s of Baby Boomers in Mecklenburg County facing similar challenges with their parents in the near future. There are retirement homes, assisted living and nursing homes, even home healthcare companies, but how does that help the family who can’t afford to pay $150 per day or more to take care of their aging, possibly mentally and/or physically challenged parents?
Our research indicates that is a large number of middle income families and individuals in southern Mecklenburg County who are in need of this kind of care. To that end, we are building Mount Tabor House, an Adult Daycare Center which will serve the South Charlotte corridor along Highway 51 from Matthews to Pineville.This area currently lacks any daycare facilities for the middle-income group of adults/seniors.
We are committed to establishing a safe, compassionate, educational and nurturing environment in order to promote personal independence and well-being for this often overlooked group.We are presently looking to purchase 1.9 acres of property in the South Charlotte corridor along Pineville/Matthews Road. We are also formulating plans for the building itself which would include a multipurpose room, nurses’ room, respite rooms, television viewing room, computer lab, full kitchen, separate baths, and offices.
Our goal is to raise at least $85,000 in the next 60 days, which represents 10% of the projected cost of Mount Tabor House. We are completely committed to this project and to providing this badly needed social service for our community.
