SARASOTA, FL – Pines of Sarasota Foundation recently received gifts from three local foundations. With these donations, the Foundation continues to support Pines of Sarasota’s 253 residents in its Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing and Memory Care Units.
$10,500 was received from The Kiwanis Foundation of Sarasota. This funding will support Ready & Steady – A Plan for Better Balance, an initiative focused on preventing falls among the senior population. Falls are now the number one reason for emergency room visits and can be life-altering or life-threatening. Pines of Sarasota Rehabilitation and Senior Care Community provides free balance assessments for anyone who has a concern about his or her safety in regard to balance.
$25,000 was contributed by the Harold and Jacqueline Bladel Foundation. This grant will help fund a new chiller plant, a critical part of the heating and cooling infrastructure for Pines of Sarasota’s mid-campus buildings.
