Dear Community Member,
It’s a pleasure to write this note to you today. My name is Keith Bell, and I am the new CEO of Homage Senior Services.
I moved into the role of acting CEO when Steve McGraw retired in November 2021. Since that time, I’ve seen such extraordinary compassion and generosity from our community – folks like you who genuinely care about seniors and their safety. I am in awe of your strength and commitment, especially during some very trying times.
My desire to become part of Homage and this caring community stems from years working in the healthcare industry. It was when I started helping organizations launch Medicare programs that I developed a special interest in the senior population. It’s one of the many reasons I came to love Homage. The other reason is because of you!
You’ve shown that together, we can tackle anything. Because of caring folks like you, Homage came through 2020 and 2021 stronger than ever. I know that, no matter what the challenges are, together, we will make sure our older adult friends and neighbors have reliable care and resources to keep them safe, healthy, and happy.
As we work to come out of this pandemic, new challenges for older adults have become clear. As you can imagine, the need for mental health services has skyrocketed. Meals on Wheels deliveries have escalated, and with the rise in fuel prices, the cost to deliver meals has doubled. Creating safe, social contacts for older adults to connect plays a vital role in their well-being. In addition, years of neglected home maintenance have left seniors in urgent need for home safety repairs.
The needs can seem endless, but your dedication and commitment to the care of older adults is what brings me hope for a brighter future.
And, now with my mother’s generation aging, it comforts me to know that we live in such a supportive community. A community made up of caring people like you. Thank you for being part of the Homage family.
I look forward to the good work we will do together in 2022 and beyond.
With deepest gratitude,
Chief Executive Officer, Homage Senior Services
