Transitions LifeCare receives portion of Searstone/Lutheran Services Carolinas award
The Searstone/Lutheran Services Carolinas Community Benefit Committee recently announced $340,500 in grants to 14 organizations in Wake County.
Since 2014, the committee has directed five percent of revenues from the operation of Searstone to Wake County nonprofit organizations serving seniors, indigent seniors, or other vulnerable populations. Since the inception of the grants, nearly $3.9 million has been awarded to organizations doing vitally important work in the community.
Transitions LifeCare is honored to receive an award in the amount of $65,000 that will be used to help indigent, elderly hospice patients in Wake County in the form of unreimbursed medical care.
Transitions LifeCare often partners with other non-profit area service organizations for extra support or referral to ensure each patient and their family can focus on adding life to days rather than the stress of food insecurity, advance directives, medical equipment, etc.
