NSES Thanks Salem Five for their Donation to the Money Management Program

Our Executive Director, Paul Lanzikos, recently attended Salem Five Foundation’s annual charitable breakfast. Salem Five presented North Shore Elder Services with a generous donation in support of their money management program.

Salem Five employees, Candace Doucette, Luisa Coppola, and Karyn Salines-Alves nominated North Shore Elder Services to receive the donation. These three employees are active volunteers in North Shore Elder Services’ money management program.  Collectively they have contributed nearly twenty years of volunteering!

Our money management program is a free in-home service in which trained volunteers assist eligible low-income elders who have difficulty writing checks, balancing checkbooks and/or managing household finances. This service can help an individual maintain independence and stay living in one’s own home. Our volunteers have various backgrounds and professional experience. We have volunteers with full time careers and others who have retired. We are always looking for volunteers to join our team.  If interested in becoming a volunteer there is an online application on our website at https://nselder.org/money-management-program/ or you can call our Volunteer Department at 978-624-2288.

North Shore Elder Services sincerely thanks Salem Five for their generous donation to our money management program and special thanks go out to Candace, Luisa, and Karyn for nominating us.

Jayne Girodat is the Communications Specialist at North Shore Elder Services. Along with ten years in the position of Caregiver Support Specialist at another ASAP, Jayne was a long-distance caregiver to parents for the same amount of time. That experience serves as motivation to better understand the issues of aging and to engage people in conversations about those issues. Jayne's background in teaching contributes to her appreciation of social media as a tool to educate readers on aging concerns. "I love asking people questions. Everyone likes to be heard. When you ask and then listen, you'll find everyone has a story and some of those stories are gems. I think it is particularly important to hear the voices of our older adults. Those are the stories I really connect to and hope to bring to North Shore Elder Services' audience."
