As part of the company’s 40th anniversary celebration, the Family & Nursing Care Foundation is formed to help lower-income older adults gain access to the care they need to remain in their homes and to provide scholarships for students to earn a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certificate in order to care for the aging population.
