Adult Day Programs:
Adult Day programs offer a safe and enjoyable place for aging and impaired adults to stay social and engaged during the day, while receiving expert care in our beautiful, award-winning facilities. Our compassionate staff is highly trained in providing care, and our three conveniently located centers offer an affordable alternative to staying home alone or entering a nursing home.
Our Adult Day Services provides a way for family or caregivers to work or manage other responsibilities during the day. It also provides the peace of mind that your loved one is surrounded by professional staff in a safe environment, with plenty of opportunities to make friends, enjoy nutritious meals and participate in meaningful activities that stimulate the mind, body, and spirit.
Opened in 1994, the Rathbun House provides a home-like environment for families and caregivers accompanying a patient receiving medical care or treatment at Mission Hospital, CarePartners, or the VA hospital. The Rathbun House is the only hospitality house in western North Carolina and is a philanthropic establishment that operates on love, support, comfort, and monetary gifts.
WNC Greatest Needs Fund:
This fund serves to assist individuals needing healthcare in our community with support where needed. In addition, it allows the Foundation to address urgent, health-related needs of our WNC neighbors in a timely fashion. The fund also supports our Allied Health Scholarship Program awarded to graduating students in the 18 counties the Foundation serves who are pursuing health-related occupations, as well as UNCA Asheville Summer Internships and the Norvell Faculty Endowment Award.
Grief Support Fund:
At Mountain Care Grief Support, we believe that people who are grieving can benefit from the support of others. When you lack support, grief can go unaddressed and unresolved. Our services are designed to help those grieving find the support they need, when they need it most.
Your support of Mountain Care Grief Support will help us continue to offer the many supports to our Western NC community. Funds raised will go to continuing our support services, which include Adult and Youth Grief Counseling Services, Other grief support including literature, education classes, and special events such as the bi-annual Memorial Service, Coping with the Holidays workshops, or the Grief Coffee House, and Music Therapy Services for hospice and our music therapy internship program.
You’re Special Fund:
Every day, donations to the “You’re Special” Fund keep someone safely in their home. “You’re Special” can assist patients in crisis situations and can help low-income and elderly patients pay for necessary items that are not covered by insurance, such as hip kits, grab bars, glucose test strips, medications, and tub transfer benches.
The “You’re Special” Fund is used only to pay for expenses that are not covered by any other source.
Designate your funds to a local nonprofit. Any funds they receive will help to empower them to continue supporting their mission of helping our WNC neighbors.
