LINC Cares Resident Services

Esther
Esther is a senior resident at SEASONS at The Hoover in Whittier who came to the U.S. from Kenya. She has called this community home for more than six years, bringing life and joy to her neighbors. As is true for many seniors, necessities like transportation, accessing health care, and keeping up the home despite physical limitations were challenging for Esther. With few family members close by to help, completing applications and maintaining services were also difficult. These demands have been overwhelming at times and Esther found herself at risk of losing some of the assistance she receives.

The LINC Cares team is there to help seniors meet these critical needs as they age. Through LINC Cares Supportive Services, the Resident Services Coordinator helped Esther obtain and maintain benefits from Title VI, Access LA, and Social Security - so she could keep her job, access transportation, and a maintain a steady income. One example of Esther’s success in overcoming challenges was being connected with In Home Supportive Services (IHSS). Esther was struggling to take care of her home due to her health. After getting connected with IHSS with help from LINC Cares, she hired her first caregiver.

Esther now has weekly visits from her caregiver and can age in place in her comfortable and healthy home. And she knows LINC Cares is there to support her and her neighbors when new challenges arise.
