CARR would like to extend our warmest congratulations to our Board of Director's member, Dr. Joaquin Anguera, for his recent appointment by Governor Brown to the California Commission on Aging. CARR has had the privilege of collaborating with Dr. Anguera for the past 7 years and knows firsthand how beneficial Dr. Anguera's experience and perspective will be to California's senior community.
CARR wishes (with eyes shut tight) to afford one Exhibitor Table at an upcoming local aging conference. From this coveted spot, CARR's 2 advocates will wear mildly comfortable heels but friendly smiles to canvas the trade show floor for 17 hours & present to senior advocates our meaningful work & innovative approach to advocacy.
Due to a shoestring budget, CARR is restricted to local events & it is unprecedented good fortune that such a significant one IS LOCAL this year! This is a networking opportunity we really have a chance at. Could you please help us get there? Could you please help us spread the word about caring for our grannies & grandpas? Below are 3 bullet points to help you wrap your mind around a donation to this campaign:
Thanks to the generosity of our volunteer, Padma, CARR can now offer consumers the “Assisted Living 101” App available for download on any Android device.
Seniors, families and professionals will find answers to the most fundamental questions about California’s assisted living industry. One more way CARR is empowering consumers using innovation and education.
We publish the compliance histories, plus other relevant organization information, on all facilities in San Diego & Imperial Counties and a growing number of other CA counties.
We educate seniors and families on how to make informed placement decisions.
We build confidence and compassion in our students interns.
We code data to study problem areas of senior care and inform policy changes.
And, many times, we just listen and give families a space to air their frustrations.
It is our personal commitment to integrity, transparency, accountability and quality of life for dependent seniors that keeps us going. We are thankful our hard work is earning CARR a special place in communities throughout California.
"CARR is providing a service that is long overdue. Providing care for your aging relatives should not be as difficult as it is. Thanks to their work, hopefully it will be much easier to make the right decisions in the future."
