Guardianship Manager Retires from the State of Texas and Accepts Position at Friends for Life.

 Clifford A. Walker has joined Friends for Life as Guardianship Director after having served as Regional Operations Manager of the state guardianship program for over eleven years.

“We prayed for a person with Clifford’s experience to join our team, never dreaming God would provide Clifford,” said Inez Russell, Founder & Executive Director of Friends for Life.  “Not only do I consider Mr. Walker to be the best of the best in the field of guardianship, but he is also an ordained minister, bringing a God-centered perspective to his management processes.  He is a perfect addition to our leadership team.” See full Press Release here.

Join Our GoFundMe Campaign and Bring Memory Back through Music

Music and Memory is a program that helps people find renewed meaning and connection in their lives through the gift of personalized music. This amazing program is rooted in extensive neuroscience research. Bringing this program to Friends for Life would help clients escape the isolation of dementia and other neurological and physical conditions, making them happier and more social, deepening relationships with staff, improving behavior management issues, and much more!

To start the program, we need an initial $1,000 to pay for the training. After that we will need additional funding to pay for ipods, headphones, and iTunes gift cards.

Please help us reach our $2000 goal!

Our Adult Day Care Center provides a safe environment for 80 to 100 adults with disabilities and seniors including nursing care, personal care, meals, transportation, and a fun and interesting activity schedule. Family members can continue to work because the Friends for Life Adult Day Care Center provides quality care for their loved ones during the day.
