Leaves crunch, lives change--all because of you! #GivingTuesday

Leaves crunch as they go into bags. Lawnmowers purr. Laughter. Conversation. A Seabury Age-In-Place® project is underway. And that is thanks to you! With your help, Seabury coordinates volunteers to do yard work and housecleaning projects so that older adults can stay in the homes and communities they love. This year, contributions from people like you connected more than 2,300 volunteers to isolated older adults through the Age-In-Place® program. Your support of Age-In-Place® today on Giving Tuesday ensures that 97-year-old Korea is not isolated and can stay more safely in her home and community. In 1927, Korea was seven years old when she and her four siblings found themselves homeless.

Creating a Refuge for Older Adults In Need #SeasonOfSmiles

At age 82, Donnie (pictured above) is a pretty snappy dresser (always wearing a jacket and tie), a friendly guy, and active in the church. You tend to like him immediately but his charm and outward appearance hid the fact that only six months ago Donnie was living in squalor. His home was ridden with bed bugs and rodents, trash was everywhere, and random people were sleeping in his home. Strangers were asking him for money and he was handing it over.

Only when members of Donnie’s church dropped b

Hospice and Palliative Care: Do You Know The Difference?

by Gretchen Gaines, LICSW, Seabury Care Manager, and Christine Bitzer, LICSW, Assistant Director, Seabury Care Management Hospice care is a comprehensive health care service available to a person who has a serious illness near the end of life.

Seabury Care Management Welcomes Back Jennifer Sapp

Welcome back, Jennifer! Back in 2000, Jennifer Sapp saw a two-sentence ad in the Washington Post for a care manager. She called and spoke with the program director, Monica Micklos, and that is how Jennifer first came to Seabury as a care manager. Eight years later Jennifer left Seabury to raise a family and started her own care management practice in Anne Arundel County Maryland. Pictured above, Monica Micklos, left, Seabury Care Management Director, smiles with Jennifer Sapp, right. But recently, Jennifer realized something – she missed being a part of Seabury. “I really missed it,” says Jennifer,“ especially the camaraderie of the care management team and the clear mission of the organiza
