Acts of Loving Kindness

Cedar Village’s senior volunteer program provides the opportunity for the residents to live with purpose. Our resident volunteers take a collaborative approach in planning their weekly projects and monthly outings. Many of our volunteers, averaging age 80 and older, were active volunteers in their community before moving to Cedar Village and our volunteer program allows those individuals to continue their volunteer work throughout retirement. It is never too late to do good for the community, and individuals who are new to volunteering are always welcome.

Research shows that individuals who do volunteer work have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer. Older volunteers are the most likely to receive greater benefits from volunteering because they are provided with physical and social activity and a sense of purpose, according to a report by the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Or volunteers always wear their purple shirts and their smiles while sharing stories and bonding with the individuals they are serving in organizations throughout the community like the Ronald McDonald House, Crayons to Computers, homeless shelters, and much more.

We are proud of our senior volunteers and the difference they make in the community!

Help Stop the Cycle of Abuse

The Shalom Center for the Prevention of Elder Abuse operates through partnering with Cedar Village. It is the first emergency elder abuse shelter in the state of Ohio, the only shelter for victims of elder abuse in the tri-state area, & 1 of only 12 in the nation. The location where at risk seniors are housed is kept confidential. The team at Cedar Village manages & funds every aspect of the counseling & care delivered so people age 65 & better suffering from abuse or neglect are able to heal safely at no cost to themselves.

Each year an estimated 1 in 10 older Americans are victims of physical, sexual, psychological, & financial abuse and/or neglect. Other local programs are ill-equipped for the special needs of the elderly.  Your support helps us meet the critical need of providing care & support to victims of elder abuse while ensuring our ability to continue breaking the cycle of abuse.

Throughout their stay, individuals in the Shalom Center receive necessary services- including a full range of health care and supportive services and a coordinated system of psychological, spiritual, and legal care. Integration into community activities, services, and programs is also encouraged for the highest quality of life and overall well being.

Many individuals do not realize a loved one or caregiver is abusing them physically, mentally, emotionally, etc…until it is too late. Cedar Village and the Shalom Center partner with community agencies, law enforcement, hospitals, and many others to raise awareness in the community to encourage early intervention and provide a safety net for vulnerable older adults.

Funds raised for the Shalom Center are used to offset costs incurred for medical care, social services, nursing care, therapy, and other necessary items. Often, elder abuse victims arrive to the Shalom Center with only the clothes they are wearing. Your donation will help provide those in need with items they need to begin their life again.

Wish Granted

Cedar Village strives to make wishes come true every day. Last month 2 of our Hospice patients had a very simple request, they wanted to see the new version of “The Jungle Book” in the movie theater. Through the Cedar Village Chai Hopes Fund, which helps create wishes for our residents, the Hospice team was able to arrange one last trip to the movies for these two patients. Thanks to our Hospice team, who works tirelessly ensuring the best quality end of life care, we can give this resident a special experience to enjoy time with his friends and loved ones. One of our Hospice team members reflected on this experience saying she is “…very grateful for the Chai Hopes Fund, as it has allowed our team the opportunity to enhance the lives of our patients. People often see Hospice as the last stop on life’s long and sometimes bumpy road, but I see Hospice as an opportunity to allow a patient to LIVE. [Granting wishing like] taking patients to see a movie, allows our patients to live out the rest of days with dignity and comfort."

Your donation will help us be able to help continue making dreams come true.
