LovExtension: "Serving to Improve Life!"

 
What is LovExtension and what does LovExtension do?
LovExtension is a nonprofit organization consisting entirely of volunteers who are serving to improve life for the under-served elderly and disabled communities in Lake County and The Villages, Florida. Primarily, we provide social and well-being visits for folks who do not have much support, and we also distribute donated items and supplies to those in need.

The Founder's Story
"I was a caregiver for my parents and for a short period of time, my mother had to be in a nursing home. My dad and I visited her daily. During one of the visits, we noticed an elderly gentleman that was visiting his wife. He became weak and I asked him if we could drive him home or follow him home. He said he would appreciate us following him home. When we arrived at his home, he told us he had no food in his house and his wife was in the nursing home with Alzheimer's. She was also the cook. I asked him if he had a microwave and if he knew how to use it. Yes and yes.

So my dad and I went to the store and returned with microwavable food. I also returned to the nursing home and informed them about what was going on. They made arrangements for the gentleman to eat at the nursing home with his wife. Until this gentleman reached his breaking point, and told someone, no one knew his situation. He had four daughters living out of state, but did not want them to know. LovExtension was founded in 2001 to be a liaison between children living out of state and their parents who retired to Florida. We also wanted to provide social visits to help with loneliness and depression."
Linda Krupski, LovExtension Founder
