Priority Needs

General Support

Senior living and senior care continue to evolve and change. A gift to the General Fund ensures support for where the need is greatest.

Financial Assistance

As individuals live longer and expenses grow exponentially, seniors find that their funds and savings are not going as far as initially planned. It is our goal to ensure that every resident can remain at Dow Rummel as long as needed. Gifts to the Financial Assistance Fund are used to offset the monthly living expenses of residents needing this support.
