“We don’t have to worry so much,” Mrs. Armstrong said. “We know Hawthorn House is there for us.” The cost of assisted living and memory care are sometimes a surprise to seniors and their families. Because of you, our benevolent fund is available for eligible surviving spouses of retired enlisted airmen residing at Bob Hope Village and Hawthorn House.

“We don’t have to worry so much,” Mrs. Armstrong said. “We know Hawthorn House is there for us.” The cost of assisted living and memory care are sometimes a surprise to seniors and their families. Because of you, our benevolent fund is available for eligible surviving spouses of retired enlisted airmen residing at Bob Hope Village and Hawthorn House.

Hawthorn House opened in 2005 and gave Bob Hope Village residents and all surviving spouses of retired enlisted airmen an option for assisted living without leaving their Air Force family here at our community.

Our memory care wing again became an option for residents to stay with their Air Force family when diagnosed by their doctor with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Memory care requires more individual assistance and has become a crucial component of the community.

“We’re seeing more and more residents transitioning from independent living to assisted living and then to memory care,” Hawthorn House Administrator Leigh Rice said. “Our memory care waiting list continues to grow.”

It’s comforting for residents to know that they can continue to live in their community they’ve called home for years and with their friends. It’s also comforting to know that because of donors like you, residents have options and don’t have to worry.
