What's Happening at Devereux California … July 2017

Devereux Day: Fiesta de Flamenco

Adult Day Program Celebrates July 4

  
  

Our Adult Day Program celebrated the July 4th holiday with games and activities, including making colorful tie-dye socks, face painting, water balloons, dancing, and lunch from Kyle’s Kitchen. Kyle made a special visit to the event.

Weisman Center for the Elderly

We are currently expanding and enhancing our Weisman Residential Senior Care Project and upgrading the program’s service level to a Specialized Residential Care Facility for the Elderly. The upgrade will support the urgent need in the community to support the provision of more intensive and palliative care to seniors who have significant medical needs, in addition to intellectual/developmental disabilities and behavioral disorders. These enhancements will permit care of 15 seniors with serious medical conditions, such as cardiac and respiratory disease, diabetes, impaired mobility, sensory disabilities and multiple physical disorders.

Wish List: Our Adult Day Program is in need of soft balls, recreational equipment, computers, iPads and other learning tools to meet the program’s objectives for behavioral and vocational skill-building. If you are interested in donating, please contact program director Julie Badella at julie.badella@devereux.org or call (805) 879-0306.

We currently serve more than 90 individuals in our residential facilities, and their own homes, throughout the Santa Barbara community - and that number continues to grow. Thank you to our Devereux families, individuals, staff, Advisory Board members, donors and all those who make it possible to continue the mission of our founder - Helena Devereux.

To support Devereux California with a gift, please contact the Office of External Affairs at (805) 879-0307.

The Greenhouse at the Goleta Farmers Market

If you plan to visit the Goleta Farmers Market, make sure to stop by the Devereux California booth, where participants in our Adult Day Program will sell Succulent plants and herbs grown in our very own Devereux Greenhouse.

The Devereux Greenhouse is also open for sales on Friday mornings, from 9:30 a.m. - 12 p.m., as part of our Adult Day Program.
