According to a 2019 Long Term Care survey conducted by New Jersey Adopt-A-Senior Foundation, there are currently over 3 Million Americans living in Long Term Care or Skilled Living facilities. Over 50% of these clients have no family or friends to visit them. Even more traumatic, low income or under-served clients experience a higher rate of abandonment.
Operation Kindness of Southern California, seeks to facilitate creative interactive programs that will enhance the quality of life for those long- term marginalized or vulnerable clients residing in skilled living facilities and other long term care facilities in the Southern California area.
We believe in honoring those who went before us and taught us the value of kindness, that caring for others and extending compassion, especially to those who are most frail, vulnerable, and often forgotten is a moral imperative. By extending kindness to these individuals we have the power to reignite in these individuals that we serve a purpose of being an important part of our community.
Our community-based services focus on enhanced emotional and social support through companionship, personalized social interactions, holiday gift giving programs and helping to provide the basic necessities that honor and enhance their social and emotional well- being.
VISION: Enhance the quality of life for under-served clients residing in Skilled Living Facilities
MISSION: Provide support to individuals through companionship, personalized social interactions, and holiday-gift giving programs.
VALUES: Guiding us in our mission are our values:
