TESTIMONIALS

OUR PARTICIPANTS AND FAMILIES SAY IT BEST...

It helped me and my mom!

I would like to express my appreciation to the Senior Social Club, because it has proven to be a valuable service for me. The center has provided a safe place and social environment for my mother and allows her to interact with others. This in turn allows me to do personal errands and take time to socialize.

Attentive Care

I am loving Virtare!  I had high blood pressure for several days. One of your staff called me and discovered that I was having trouble getting my medication refilled by my doctor. With your help, I was able to get an appointment quickly and get help with some other health concerns I had, too.
