12 GENERALS


editorial@robson.com — June 2012 What’s your story?


Friendship that lasts a lifetime.


“Thank you for coming to my rescue!” “I know we couldn’t have made it without


your help.” “Thank you for the wonderful support


you provided to my grandfather.” “I can never thank you enough.” “Without your help and kindness, I’d be


in a home.” These statements are typical of the notes


we receive every day. And each represents a very personal story: the woman who, temporarily disabled after surgery, couldn’t drive herself to medical appointments, shop, or cook; the grandfather, whose family was all on the East coast, who could no longer get out on his own; the snowbirds who could no longer prepare nutritious meals for themselves. Each one of our clients has a similar, but


unique story. Some have no family to care for them. Others haven’t enough money to pay for care. For some the need strikes suddenly, unexpected illness, accident or surgery. For others,


it creeps up on them,


part of the slow decline of aging. Almost all are long-time residents of Sun Lakes or south Chandler who now fi nd they need a helping hand from their neighbors. They may be lonely, scared, even hungry; unsure what the future will bring. They desperately want to be able to stay in their own home, in their own neighborhood, living as independently as possible,


for as long as possible. Many


understand what it’s like to help others in this situation, having themselves been volunteers for Neighbors Who Care. The clients are but one part of the


Neighbors Who Care story. Each of our volunteers has their own story: the recently retired business owner who fi nds new purpose in helping others, the widowed homemaker who adopts a new “family,” the offi ce workers who fi nd new friends, or the inactive golden-ager who, by helping others, “feels like a teenager again.” Our donors have their stories too. Some


are thanking us for helping them or a family member in a time of need. Others are helping to insure that we will be here in the future if they need assistance themselves. Many feel that it’s their duty as human beings to help others. All believe that Neighbors Who Care makes this a better place to live. Each member of the Neighbors Who


Care family has a story, and by working together, we can try to give each story a happy ending. What’s your story? 
