On Oct. 3, the Bedford Block Party is going virtual for its annual fundraiser between 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm which aims to raise funds for the Adult Day Health Care.
The event will include appearances from local elected officials, remarks from a family caregiver, an honoree ceremony for the late Ralph Garrow Jr., information on the Bedford Center, and live music from members of The Delta Dogs!
“I don’t know about you, but when I’m down, helping others lifts me up – and that is just what we’re going to do October 3rd with the Bedford Block Party! We’re raising money to help those at greatest risk of bad outcomes from COVID-19,” said Debbie Toth, Choice in Aging CEO. “We’re doing it with incredible music by members of the Delta Dogs, gourmet BBQ cuisine for pickup from Tom Hartrick and an hour of hearing from our elected officials, a caregiver and a little from me about the people we love and serve.”
In addition to the live virtual event, they will also be having a multi-day virtual Silent Auction, Sponsorship Opportunities, a VIP Attendee Package, & BBQ Catering for the day of the event!
About Choice in Aging
Choice in Aging provides programs that offer frail elders and adults with disabilities an opportunity to live with dignity and independence and supports caregivers.
Choice in Aging is a community based nonprofit, born in 1949, whose mission is to create opportunities where people can learn, grow, and age independently with dignity and community.
Choice in Aging provides Adult Day Health Care services in a congregate setting – we have programs in Antioch and Pleasant Hill. These programs are staffed with nurses, social workers, a dietitian, physical and occupational therapists, activity coordinators and more! Programs include Russian, Farsi, mid-to-late stage Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia and general programs.
Choice in Aging also offers the Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) in Contra Costa, Napa, and Solano Counties, which provides a nurse and social worker team who help people 65 and older on Medi-Cal who are at risk for institutionalization continue living at home. The Prevention and Early Access for Seniors (PEAS) program is a mental health case management program that strives to identify Older Adults 60+ in Solano County that are struggling to find and or maintain a positive quality of life. California Community Transitions at Choice in Aging helps people who are institutionalized get back out into community living.
Finally, Choice in Aging partners with our neighbors at Choice in Learning Montessori to offer intergenerational activities to help bring the gap between the aging population and the youngest generation. Choice in Aging also provides education, support, and referrals to caregivers to help them keep their loved ones living at home.
