Benevolent Care: The Good Neighbor Fund
Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the strength of the BHI Foundation, we are proud to offer the security of lifelong care for BHI residents who deplete their financial resources, through no fault of their own, and are no longer able to meet their monthly living expenses.
BHI residents who enter one of our CCRCs under a continuing care agreement are eligible to apply for benevolent care so that they may continue their residency in that community for as long as they choose. We are proud to say that no resident with a continuing care agreement has ever been asked to leave one of BHI’s senior living communities because of an inability to pay, when their financial resources have been exhausted through no fault of their own.
Employee Assistance Programs
The BHI Foundation sponsors a scholarship program for the employees of BHI’s retirement communities. This tuition reimbursement program is designed to encourage employees to enhance their personal and professional growth through higher education and training. Additionally, the BHI Foundation offers a student loan repayment assistance program to help employees reduce their existing student loan debt.
With the aid of your generosity, the BHI Foundation provides significant funding for the Wellness Budget in each community. This support allows us to offer fitness programs, staffing, equipment, and more so our residents receive the benefit of comprehensive mind/body/spirit care.
