🌟 Pete's Incredible Journey: From Isolation to Independence 🌟

Meet Pete, a proud Californian who faced significant challenges after suffering heart attacks in 2008. He ended up in a Skilled Nursing Facility and lost his subsidized apartment, leading to 12 years of isolation and depression. But with the help of the Institute on Aging, Pete's life took a remarkable turn.

We specialize in transitioning individuals back into the community, and Pete's story is a shining example. With our support, he moved into a beautiful Senior Housing apartment in January. Today, he's thriving, decorating his apartment, and enjoying a newfound sense of independence. 🏡
By donating to Institute on Aging, you can help us continue supporting individuals like Pete in their quest for independence and leading fulfilling lives. Visit the link in our bio to donate today!
