Glen Meadows Retirement Community

Generosity in Action

Glen Meadows is fortunate to have residents, families, volunteers and staff who are committed to ensuring and enhancing the quality of life for all residents at every level of service – now and in the future.

Gifts to Glen Meadows over the years have been as varied as the people we serve and have been made directly by individuals or through the Glen Meadows Foundation. Our wheelchair accessible mini-van, for example, was provided through a resident initiated fund drive. Other gifts, such as the four Wii entertainment systems and the in-house cable TV station have been generously provided by the Foundation.

In addition, gifts to the Glen Meadows Foundation help to provide charitable care to those residents who have outlived their personal financial resources. No one has ever been asked to leave the Presbyterian Senior Living system of care because they had outlived their resources. This means if a person does not divest or give away assets, we have an unwavering history of keeping our commitment to the people we serve. In fact, Glen Meadows provided $116,750 for uncompensated care in 2010.

If you or a loved one have benefited in any way from our services, we invite you to consider extending the gift of quality care and quality of life in any number of ways.
