A Look Back – Milton Village Donor Event

Milton Village Donors Gather to Tour New Facility

Hospice Foundation and REAL Services hosted an open house for Milton Village donors on Tuesday, September 13 at the Village’s new home, formerly Center for Hospice Care’s (CHC) inpatient unit and offices.  Located in Roseland, the facility now houses Milton Adult Day Services.  More than 70 people who attended the event toured the new facility, learned more about the programming offered there and enjoyed refreshments and hors d’oeuvres.

New construction associated with the remodeling involved creating the Tire Rack Garage. During the event, it contained a 1962 Studebaker Lark convertible on display thanks to Terry Rodino, a past CHC board member. Clients of Milton Adult Day Services will soon be able to tinker with a donated vehicle that will be placed in the garage.

Other features of the new dementia daytime care facility include a putting green for those who golf. It is in a safe, fenced-in outdoor space which also features a gazebo and raised garden beds.

Inside the facility, both clients and caregivers can relax in a four-season room named Jane’s Front Porch. Funding for the room was provided by Mary Jane Stanley in memory of her mother, Jane Kuzmitz.

Milton Village, the new home of Milton Adult Day Services, a service of CHC, is one of the first dementia daytime care facilities in the US that integrates immersion programming into its services, which reflects best practices for dementia clients. It provides a structured setting for functionally impaired adults who require supervision and need health, social and support services during the day.
