With the rising cost of housing, health care, and transportation, today many seniors find it impossible to get by with no savings and limited income typically provided by social security. Many of the elderly live out their years in substandard housing without care while succumbing to loneliness and depression.
The Salvation Army is working to change that.
Located at 123 South West Cloverleaf High Point, NC 27260, the primary mission of the 76 Booth Garden Apartments is to provide an affordable, safe, independent living community.
The professional and caring staff provide an atmosphere in stark contrast to the isolation and risks often associated with public housing independent living facilities. Support groups, birthday celebrations, shopping trips and light recreational activities are provided with Salvation Army staff to create an environment that preserves the dignity and quailty of life of Booth Garden's residents.
For more information on senior services, please call William Booth Garden Apartments at (336) 881.5450 or send an e-mail to Nancy.Stewart@uss.salvationarmy.org.
