When your loved one transitions into one of six Buckner senior living communities, you can rest assured they will be cared for, even if the family needs financial assistance. It's one of the many things that stands out about Buckner. If a resident living in a Buckner community runs out of money, the Senior Care Assistance Fund is there to provide financial support and assistance.
"How can we tell someone who has lived with us all these years that this is no longer your home just because you can't afford it?" said Abraham Mathew, senior executive director of Buckner Parkway Place in Houston.
The Bixby family knows what this support is like. Betsy Bixby is the perfect picture of a daughter lovingly caring for her 97-year-old mother.
"It's frightening to think about your parent running out of money and not having good care, and this was an absolute answer to prayer," Bixby shared. "I feel like Parkway Place and the Buckner umbrella, it's a beautiful approach to caring, for caring for our seniors. It's what God calls us to, to care for the widows and infants."
The impact of the Senior Care Assistance Fund is that families can continue to love and support their loved ones without the stress of added financial burdens.
"Buckner stands out, saying that 'You can outlive your finances, but you can't outlive the care we have for you,'" Mathew said.
