I  n the late 1970’s and mid-1980’s, a new concept of caring
   for frail older adults was emerging. Adult Day Care Centers
existed in only a few U.S. cities, addressing a growing need
for community-based care as an alternative to nursing home
or other institutionalization options. Largely modeled on the
Child Day Care concept, the Adult Day Care Centers targeted
clients who needed assistance with activities of daily living
such as toileting, medication administration, and feeding.
They helped those who could no longer derive benefit from
a Senior Center and served people in need of structured
activities in a supervised setting to remain as independent as
possible.
Because of forward-thinking, Saint Mary’s Administration
and Board of Trustees were aware of the need for adult day
care in the Erie community and opened the Adult Day Care
Program at Saint Mary’s East in November 1987. At that time,
four other Adult Day Programs were also operating in the Erie
area. Saint Mary’s program was the largest in the area, licensed    Pictured above: Maura Pelinsky, Adult Day Services Director and

                                   New Development Department created to help you achieve your philanthropic goals

                                  S  aint Mary’s Home of Erie has enjoyed a growing philanthropic support of its Mission.
                                     Because of this growth, the Administration has created a department dedicated to
                                  providing you (our donors, residents, families and the community) with helpful information
                                  and expertise. The employees will be available to help you achieve your philanthropic goals
                                  and keep you up-to-date on the impact your gift is having on our residents.
                                  In addition, a volunteer Development Committee, comprised of Board, employees, and
                                  community members, has been formed to help ensure that every person in the community has
                                  the opportunity to donate. The spirit of giving is alive and well at Saint Mary’s Home!
