Join The Frankie Mae Foundation every Tuesday at 4:30 pm EST
Our services and resources are specifically created to cater to the needs of caregivers. We understand the challenges and complexities that come with caregiving, which is why we provide support, personalized information, and tools to help manage these demands. We believe that family caregivers should not have to compromise their well-being and livelihood. That's why we offer direct relief to ensure that caregivers can prioritize their health and maintain a balanced life. To create a safe and non-judgmental space where caregivers can freely express their emotions and thoughts without guilt, we invite you to join us every Tuesday evening at 4:30 on Facebook Live. This is an opportunity for caregivers from all over to come together and engage in meaningful conversations.
WE CAN'T DO IT ALONE
Our primary objective is to assist as many caregivers as possible, acknowledging the immense need for help within our communities. While we aspire to extend our aid to every family in need, we understand the limitations of our resources. Recognizing the magnitude of the task at hand, we firmly believe that we cannot accomplish it alone. This is why we have established partnerships with various foundations, which enables us to work collaboratively towards our common goal. These foundations offer dedicated volunteers and valuable resources to ensure that caregivers receive the support they require. As the well-known saying goes, "It takes a Village," implying that collective effort is necessary to address the challenges faced by families in need.
We will sponsor several caregivers and their families. If you need help please don't hesitate to contact us.
The Program of All-Inclusive Care (PACE) is a Medicare not-for-profit, Medicaid State option program. We serve participants 55 and older, by providing preventive and long-term care services for those requiring nursing home level of care. Our number one goal is to empower our aging population with the choice to live safely in the home they love.
THE IMPORTANCE OF MENTAL HEALTH
Taking care of someone else can be a demanding and challenging task, both physically and emotionally. Therefore, it is crucial for caregivers to prioritize their own mental health. When caregivers neglect their mental well-being, it can lead to exhaustion, burnout, and a decline in the quality of care they provide. By taking the time to focus on their own mental health, caregivers can ensure that they are better equipped to handle the responsibilities and stress that come with caregiving. This can include engaging in self-care activities, seeking support from friends and family, or even attending therapy sessions. Prioritizing mental health not only benefits the caregiver but also the individual receiving care, as it allows the caregiver to be more present, patient, and compassionate.
Don't miss out on the chance to prioritize your mental well-being without any cost. Take a step towards healing and personal growth by accessing these free therapy sessions today. Remember, your mental health is important, and the Frankie Mae Foundation is here to support you on your journey toward overall wellness.
The Frankie Mae Foundation is providing a wonderful opportunity for individuals to receive FREE mental therapy sessions.

Mobile Food Market
To ensure that senior residents have easier access to groceries and fresh vegetables, Mecklenburg County DSS has implemented a Mobile Market initiative. This initiative involves a refrigerated van that navigates through the local community, delivering essential groceries and produce directly to our neighborhoods.
The Mobile Market program is made possible through a collaborative effort between the Frankie Mae Foundation and Weeping Willow A.M.E. Zion Church. Every month, on the first Tuesday, the Mobile Market sets up at Weeping Willow Church, providing a convenient pantry for the community. This joint effort aims to improve the accessibility and availability of nutritious food options for seniors in the area.
