Witherell Kicks Off 2016 Annual Appeal
When Greenwich seniors can’t live at home, they can make their home here. Donate today and help improve their lives 365 days a year!
At Nathaniel Witherell, we celebrate the lives of our 156 long-term residents every day. Our goal is to provide a warm, caring and safe environment that feels as much like home as possible. Our residents join in the rich social life and extensive programming we offer, and receive the individualized care they deserve. The Witherell is committed to providing the most professional and compassionate care possible.
When you make a gift in support of Friends of Nathaniel Witherell, you are helping to continue the Witherell’s 113-year tradition of being the finest skilled nursing facility in our area. Here are some of the wonderful ways in which your donation directly benefits Witherell residents all year long through our David Ormsby Resident Life Fund:
- Art: art education and painting classes
