Valley to Valley Senior Care Center recently received two grants for a new van. The Daniels Fund and Next 50 supported the center so they were able to purchase this new van to help even more community members.

“The van has been a great asset to the center. We welcome questions and are open and helping,” said the CEO of Valley to Valley Eve Braden.

The van is a 2021 nine-passenger van that is wheelchair accessible. It is now used to pick up people from Buena Vista, Saguache, Salida, and down to Howard. The grant to the center had $3,000 leftover after paying off the van which will be used for insurance, tires, gas, and other wear and tear on the vehicle.

The care center provides regular caregivers a break from the daily routines while at the same time assuring that their loved ones receive quality care from a compassionate, professional staff.

Valley to Valley’s program affords each senior participant a place and opportunity to build friendships and enjoy stimulating activities. It is a place where dignity, confidence, security, and independence are assured in a caring, professional environment that adds joy to their quality of life.

The program allows the regular caregivers to have a day — or a few hours — to meet the demands of their own lives, hold a daytime job, or just have time alone.

Typical hours of operation are 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
