JANUARY 2012 - VISTE
VISTE, (Volunteers in Service to the Elderly) provides services, to frail elderly persons enabling them to continue living independently in their own homes, safely, comfortably, and in better health.
Services include escorted transportation to doctors, shopping, and banking. Daily reassurance calls to clients who have no one, personal at home assistance for letter writing, reading, phone calls and insurance filing as well as distribution of food from federal commodities and VISTE's food bank.
VISTE's objective is to expand services to enhance the quality of life for the 10,449 frail elderly served representing the fastest growing age group in the U.S.A. People are living longer and are often financially unprepared to do so. On a fixed income, a costly medication for a lifetime places clients in the position of choosing between food or medications. Services are provided to clients whose address is Lakeland, Bartow, Fort Meade and Mulberry, and they live in Polk County.
