Over the last 45 years, Cushman & Wakefield | Commercial Kentucky has made a mark on Louisville. As part of the celebration of our 45th Anniversary this year, our firm would like to bring some much-deserved attention to some local charities that are also making a mark on our community. Each month, we will spotlight one of these charities via our social media as part of our “45 Things” giving back campaign. Our employees will be collecting needed items for these twelve local organizations and we hope that once you know the tremendous good they are doing here in Louisville, you will do what you can to help these organizations, too!
In honor of Grandparent’s day this month, September’s worthy organization is ELDERSERVE SENIOR CENTER. ElderServe’s Senior Center offers a variety of programs to some forgotten community members – the elderly living in poverty. The center offers health resources such as educational sessions on diabetes management, vision and hearing checks, and wellness checks that include blood pressure and podiatry. Seniors are also given access to a care manager that will help them access community services to assist in a variety of ways. The Center serves a hot lunch on weekdays, which is so beneficial to so many of the clients they serve. Options like yoga and dance classes exercise the body, while quilting, crafting, cards and bingo exercise the mind. Perhaps most important, the Center offers many individuals a chance to interact with others, make friends and ease the loneliness with which so many of them live every day.
This month our staff has been collecting jigsaw puzzles and puzzle books for the seniors who come to the ElderServe Senior Center. Studies have shown that puzzle-solving reduces the risk of memory disorders, including Alzheimer’s Disease. Our community has benefited so much from these older, wiser residents. And we appreciate all that the good folks at ElderServe do to help them. We are proud to give to an organization who makes such a big difference to so many among us.
