United Way's Focus on Health


Meet Sondra!

When Sondra’s parents passed away a few years ago, Sondra came to live with her sister Deborah. Sondra stayed with Deborah’s husband during the day while Deborah worked.

After he passed away, Deborah needed a place for Sondra to go where she could have social interaction.

Deborah learned about RossWoods Adult Day Services from a co-worker and was immediately interested in the program.

Thanks to United Way, Sondra began attending RossWoods. She loves the social interaction and the fun activities that she participates in during the day.

One of her favorite things to do is make bracelets and necklaces with beads which she proudly shows to other participants and volunteers.

Deborah is so thankful to have a safe place for Sondra to go and be cared for while she was working.

She said that she can see a positive difference in Sondra when she goes to RossWoods and that gives her peace of mind.
