Where Needed Most

This gives United Zion the most flexibility in using the funds

Caring Fund

All United Zion residents enjoy high-quality services, whether or not their care needs have outpaced their ability to pay. Your gift to the Caring Fund helps United Zion cover the more than $1 million in unreimbursed care we provide annually to individuals who have found themselves unable to pay. We value your partnership in meeting these needs!

Caregiver Fund

Frequently, appreciative residents and family members desire to recognize the care and attention our employee team members provide. Though our policies do not permit tips or gratuities, such recognition is possible through The Caregiver Fund. Gifts to The Caregiver Fund provide resources for special employee events, holiday gifts, and recognition gifts to all employees. Funds are also used to provide emergency funds for unexpected employee family or health needs, scholarships for continuing education, and service awards. Donors may specify that their gift benefit all employees, otherwise, gifts to this fund will be used in any of the ways noted here.

Capital Improvements

United Zion Retirement Community is planning for the future by enhancing its modest yet well-appointed facilities to meet the changing needs of residents and their families. During 2017 we are undertaking a major renovation to our health care center that will convert semi-private rooms to private rooms with shared baths, rearrange living space to accommodate a “neighborhood” feel, and support a customized approach to life enrichment activities and dining that makes these services available to residents in localized, small-group settings. Other slated facilities enhancements include expanded meeting space for events, and changes to the lobby and reception area. Your gift designated for capital improvements helps improve daily life for residents and the team members who serve them.

Thank You!
