“The GCM telephoned and visited me regularly and accompanied me on hospital visits. She was the one who kept me informed of my progress because she intervened for me at the rehabilitation facility. She and her team assisted in preparing for my release to release and return home, and all went smoothly.
“Thanks to the Senior Living Foundation and the excellent attention I received from the GCM my recovery seemed to go much faster. I know that I can call on the Foundation or the GCM at any time.”

In addition to the assistance provided to the retired FS community, SLF serves as a resource for active duty FSOs. The SLF Resource Center can provide guidance to FSOs and their families who are assisting their aging family members through life’s transitions. SLF can connect families to state and local agencies as well as private care management firms throughout the country.
On September 15, 2016, SLF will offer its 7th Planning for Change Seminar. The half-day event will feature speakers on prescription drugs, nutrition and health for seniors, State Department annuities, and wills and trusts. More information will be available from SLF in the months ahead.
