Keeping loneliness at bay and promoting independence
It is the mission of our Activities Program to provide activities that stimulate our resident’s mental and emotional health. Our holistic approach takes into account the importance of creating a living environment that revolves around close relationships and meaningful activities. Gifts to our Activities Program will go toward helping to alleviate loneliness, helplessness and boredom and promoting independence, growth and living a meaningful life. Give Now >
Providing independence and dignity
Most of our long-term care residents have their care covered by Medicaid which does not offset the full cost of care. Additionally, the only $50 a month Personal Needs Allowance (PNA) Medicaid provides to residents is often not enough for them purchase items not included in their care. For many residents, loved ones can help close the financial gap. But for others without a support system, they face this challenge alone. Your gift helps residents maintain dignity and independence by helping them purchase essentials and small indulgences not allowed by Medicaid’s Personal Needs Allowance like stamps, a cell phone and monthly service, a haircut, favorite snacks, new clothing or a birthday gift for a grandchild.

Spiritual Care/ Mission Program
Helping bring faith and spirituality to the elderly, the sick and the dying in a ministry of love
As a member of Covenant Health, a non-profit health system and leader in Catholic values-based health and elder care, we are dedicated to protecting and maintaining our Catholic identity and mission. Your gift to our Spiritual Care Program will provide spiritual care for residents and families, guiding them through the fear, loss and anxiety that can come as they redefine meaning and purpose for their future living here at Mount St. Rita. Our spiritual care program also provides comfort and support to our elders as they navigate difficult health decisions and news, cope with the stress of illness, and manage loneliness.
Your gift will also support the care and maintenance of our chapel and the many activities to support the spiritual health of our residents, including: celebration of the Mass and the occasion to receive the sacraments, gatherings to pray the Rosary, prayer services for those who have suffered a loss and ongoing support groups.
