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.
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."
