Nearly 300 people gathered at the Seelbach Hotel on Friday, June 8, to honor Nazareth Home’s Mary Haynes as ElderServe’s 2018 Champion for the Aging. Haynes, CEO of Nazareth Home, has long been an advocate for innovative, person-centered long-term care. The fund-raising luncheon raise about $80,000 for ElderServe, which helps thousands of older adults in Jefferson County annually. Current and past Champions for the Aging have made a profound difference in the lives of seniors and their families. ElderServe is grateful for the difference they make. The agency would also like to thank the event’s corporate sponsors and individual donors, who make it possible for the agency to empower older adults to live independently with dignity.
