Baltimore Trust supports Vision 2005 In celebration of Baltimore Trust Company opening its new branch on Carpenter's Way in Lewes, bank officials recently made a $25,000 pledge to Beebe Medical Center's Vision 2005 capital campaign. When completed, Vision 2005, the largest community campaign in Beebe's 87-year history, will help fund the new Outpatient Care Center on Route 24 and signif- icantly expand and renovate the infrastructure and the Beebe Medical Center Emergency Department on the Lewes Savannah Road campus. "Baltimore Trust is committed to serving the financial needs of our community, just as Beebe Medical Center is ded- icated to providing for our community's health-care needs," said Baltimore Trust Vice President Jim Barr. "In recogni- tion of this dedication, and during a time of growth and de- velopment throughout our community, we are pleased to make this investment in our community hospital." Shown during the campaign pledge presentation are (l-r) Barr, who is also a member of the Beebe Medical Center board of directors; Patrick Carmichael, Baltimore Trust as- sistant vice president; Jeffrey M. Fried, Beebe Medical Cen- ter president; and John R. Schroeder, Baltimore Trust vice president. CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Jan. 9 - Jan. 15, 2004 - 69 Experts say lack of services for elderly serious A new report released by Part- ners in Caregiving shows there is a serious lack of services avail- able for the elderly population. The "National Study of Adult Day Services" reveals there are 60 per- cent fewer adult day centers than needed to meet the demands of the growing elderly population. Experts warn the lack of services and rising elderly population will force baby boomers to make diffi- cult decisions regarding the care of elderly friends and relatives. As one solution, experts recom- mend the development of new adult day centers. According to the U.S. Depart- ment of Health and Human Ser- vices, one out of four U.S. house- holds - approximately 22 million - is caring for elderly loved ones. Led by Dr. Patrick Swier, Johns Hopkins trained and Board Certified in today's most successful beauty technologies, the Swier Clinic specializes in the cosmetic and reconstructive procedures that enhance beauty and restore confidence. Providing everything from facial rejuvenation and reconstructive surgery to breast surgery and body sculpting, the Swier Clinic can help you look and feel your best. theSwierClinic 1400 Savannah Road Lewes, DE 302-645-7737 Submitted photo There are about 3,400 adult day centers nationwide; the study says more than 5,000 more are needed.
