63 Washington Street Home for Seniors is the proud recipient of a 2016 award, a vote of confidence from the United Mid-Coast Charities.

In addition to this financial award, recent changes in the Board of Directors, which oversees all operations, provides new vision for the home, re-inventing itself to meet the needs of seniors in the Midcoast.

New officers include: Jeanne Denny, President, Jan Kelsey, Vice-President/Secretary, and Betty Ingraham, Treasurer. Continuing to serve on the Board are Renee Hutcheon, Bob Oxton, Tammy Swasey-Ballou, and Teddy Wilcox.

Meanwhile 63 Washington will continue to provide a homey atmosphere for seniors who are either independent (and may even have their own cars) or have some need for assistance with bathing, medications, and housekeeping. Three nutritious home cooked meals per day are served family style. All services, including transportation to medical appointments and outings, are included in the monthly rate. Care is provided 24/7 by staff, all of whom are certified to pass medications.

Contrary to rumor, 63 Washington is not closing its doors, but is continuing to make renovations to the home to upgrade the residence while exploring new programs, activities and services.

In addition to all this good news, the Board at 63 would like to thank the individual who brought back the battery charger that was accidentally sold in a successful yard sale this summer. The Board would also like to thank its volunteers who are helping to restore the grounds at 63. To volunteer, please contact Laura White, Administrator at 236-3638 or email her at 63washst@myfairpoint.net.
