JMS Southeast Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-quality standard and customized temperature sensors and a proponent of assisting the elderly, is giving back to the community with a monetary donation to ElderCenter Inc. of Statesville.
Dewayne Campbell, a long-time employee of JMS, recently presented Tammie Money, director of ElderCenter, with the proceeds generated by employee vending machines.
Campbell's father was once a client of ElderCenter. “They took such good care of my dad. He just loved to go everyday to the center,” he said.
Money fondly remembered his dad and shared that he used to have a pal at the center, and the two of them would sit together to reminisce and laugh like school kids.
“We’re so grateful to JMS, Southeast for supporting ElderCenter. This donation is a big help to keeping our rates affordable so families have a place for their aging loved ones during the day,” Money said. “Our goal is to help keep seniors in their own homes for as long as possible, reducing or eliminating the need long term nursing home care.”
Joni Stone, a client’s daughter and caregiver who also serves on the ElderCenter Board, was also present.
“I moved to Statesville with my 95-year-old mother because I knew that your city had this day care available to help give me some much-needed relief from caregiving and allowing me to work as well. The staff at ElderCenter are the most caring and respectful individuals. It’s like leaving mom with family. As a new board member, my intention in helping ElderCenter is to grow our outreach within Statesville’s community. This is a precious resource. At some point, everyone may face the challenge of what to do with an aging loved one, it’s a blessing to know they are here.”
