Join us this year to “nest at home” with OktoberNest, a month long campaign of community awareness and support for senior services in the Big Bend, culminating in a Day of Giving campaign to fund vital programs like Meals on Wheels, in-home personal care, and emergency aid.
For 21 years, our Oktoberfest event has been a night of celebration and funded programs that allow seniors to age in place all year long. In response to COVID-19 we have expanded services while adapting structures to meet the new health protocols for safety. With our strict policies in place, we are also shifting the format of Oktoberfest to protect our community. We may miss the in-person party this year but the spirit and mission of the event will not stop.
Check out our social media for engaging videos, inspiring testimonials, and links for giving opportunities. Through the power of a collective voice and individual giving you can support crucial care for seniors.
Join us for Engage Live with Elder Care Services on Thursdays in October at 11:00am for exciting sessions addressing key topics during the pandemic.
