Lehigh Valley Aging in Place Donates to Project Lifesaver

On Thursday October 9th 2014, Lehigh Valley Aging in Place used the forum of its annual USO Dance to present a check to Project Lifesaver in the amount of $2000. The funds were raised from the LVAIP Gala in July of this year. Martha Lieberman accepted the check from LVAIP President RJ Whitelock in memory of her mother, Judith Lieberman, who worked tirelessly along with Martha to bring Project Lifesaver to our area.

Nationally, Project Lifesaver is the premier Search & Rescue (SAR) program specifically designed for "At Risk" individuals who are prone to the life threatening behavior of wandering. For applicants who cannot afford the cost of this service, the contribution made by LVAIP will help to pay for the one-time fee of $350 for the tracking bracelets which includes batteries for a year. Project Lifesaver currently has 6 participants in the Lehigh Valley.

Lehigh Valley Aging in Place Coalition (LVAIP) is a 501C(3) non-profit organization: The mission of Lehigh Valley Aging in Place (LVAIP) is to provide an ongoing forum for professionals from private, public, non-profit and business sectors to inform, educate and help older adults age in place. We provide information and solutions to older adults and their families to be proactive in planning for their future needs.

2013 Gala
The LVIAP is a Non-Profit organization run completely by volunteers from our business community. Our goal every year is to utilize our exclusive “Gala” to benefit the local aging population; by increasing the distribution of our Resource Guide, increasing our educational opportunities for seniors and their families, and supporting our very popular annual “USO Senior Dance,” which each year 400+ local seniors get to enjoy one of their great past times, dancing to music from their era. We continue to provide the local area with information and resources for families. We strive to be the Solution to The Sandwich Generation and more!

The funds will also benefit The Lehigh County Senior Center. Their mission is to help seniors “Enjoy Life!” For more than 50 years the Center has been engaging people fifty-five and over in social, recreational, creative, physical, and educational activities that are affordable, stimulating and contribute to an improved quality of life. Through these fundraising efforts they are able to offer programs to those who otherwise may not have been able to afford it. At the Lehigh County Senior Center their policy continues to be that no one is ever turned away because of their inability to pay.
