May 2015 is the biggest month in our history.

Posted by: on May 31, 2015

we are providing more than 70 massage therapy sessions, touching hundreds of seniors and veterans!

Speaking of our history…June 2015 is our 5 year Anniversary.  Tender Touch For All was started in June of 2010 when I saw an unmet need for geriatric massage therapy programs at senior care facilities while I was the primary caregiver for my elderly mom.  What was just a concept 5 years ago, is now a very vibrant non-profit program servicing thousands of seniors, veterans and people with disabilities every year- mom would be proud!

 

Thank you to the Knapp-Swezey Foundation for renewing our grant for a third year…it feels great to receive such enthusiastic and continued support.

 

As most of you know, our core program runs at facilities- nursing homes, assisted living, senior centers, social adult day care, etc…however we do offer a Home Visit Program at a steeply reduced rate- $58 per hour ($78 in Manhattan)

 

Thank you to Alliance Homecare for participating in our Stress Relief for a Cause Program…we are providing chair massage for their very deserving staff twice per month, with the net proceeds going back to support our core mission programs for seniors, veterans and people with disabilities.  We also thank Hofstra UniversitySt. Joseph’s College (Brooklyn), Saint Peter’s University (Jersey City) and the University of New Haven who also supported TTFA, while providing chair massage for their stressed out students during “finals week”…truly a win-win situation!
