Yolo Hospice just started construction on a new Adult Day Program Center for Yolo County and should be ready to open late 2020. There is a strong need for this adult care center in Davis as the adult day care center in Woodland is always full and it is difficult for elderly residents of Davis to travel to Woodland.
The Center will provide socialization, activities, and care for adults, giving caregivers much needed relief from the stresses of caregiving.
A capital campaign to support the costs of this facility has been ongoing for nearly a year now. This campaign has been successful in many ways but is still short of covering all the costs.
The entire Yolo Hospice building including their main offices and this day care center will need to be painted as construction is completed later this year. This is a major expense for a nonprofit like Yolo Hospice, especially in light of the current corona virus outbreak, which is putting a great deal of strain on Yolo Hospice and all healthcare organizations.
As a home domain for their children, friends and grandchildren over the years, The Pohl family has opened up their home to help anyone in need since 1995, always has and still does have an open door to everyone. Duncan did all the remodel work and painting, which he would do himself again except that 2 years ago he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, and it has progressed rapidly. Along with Parkinson's, Duncan Recently had to have surgery to correct the pain from spinal stenosis. Due to these health problems he now must use a walker to get around and must do physical therapy regularly. His daughter and granddaughter have moved in to help take care of their needs as much as possible, but painting the outside of the house is a little beyond their abilities. Having the house painted through the charity event would help so much with the upkeep as well as providing relief to the list of things that need to be done, thus lowering the stress level of the "to do list".
