Mercy Tree Proactive Mission: 

To Help Veterans and Older Adults Cope physically with Getting Older...Age at Home 

An Older Adult's Loss of Independence due to chronic ailments  IS GRADUAL.  As an example Arthritis ....One day you wake up and find you hurt all over and are having a hard time walking.  Over time walking gets harder and you progress from a cane to a walker and then maybe to a wheelchair; Or perhaps you need grab bars to get in or out of a bathtub;  Or maybe a handy man to make minor repairs.  

Mercy Tree helping Hands: The New Vision to support Aging at Home.  
  • Older Adults helping both themselves and other older adults deal with nonmedical issues such as benefits, housing, transportation, etc.  
  • Helping Older Adults find support and services to remain Independent and Living at Home for as Long as possible.
.
Mercy Tree Proactive Seniors in Action Vision:  Create a technology  and resource community with a single point of contact so that Older Adults  and/or Disabled Veterans (or their Caregivers) can find the resources in N/NW suburbs to help them cope with daily concerns and issues of getting older.
