Benevolent Fund Provides Peace of Mind
Because of you, AFEV’s Benevolent Fund offer residents a precious gift
Memory support is an increasing need by residents as they age in place, however it is much more costly than independent living. Many memory support residents are in need of financial assistance simply because of the greater cost due to extra care provided.
AFEV’s Benevolent Fund helps with this burden and gives priority to widows of retired enlisted airmen who through no fault of their own find themselves in need of financial assistance.
Basic memory support costs $140 per day and includes a private apartment, utilities, housekeeping, all meals and snacks, caring staff, memory support activities (social, music, and fitness), wellness checks by nursing staff, and transportation to medical appointments with a chaperone. Many residents require additional services which increase the monthly cost of their care.
The Benevolent Fund is also available to eligible assisted living and independent living residents. As folks live longer, it’s not uncommon to outlive one’s retirement savings so the Benevolent Fund is there to help when needed and offer peace of mind.
