Thank you from Ethos
Thank you to all who were able to contribute to Ethos’ Annual Fund. With your help, we raised more than $36,000.

Our successes are yours, as well, and together we will continue to ensure that no matter what our age or ability, we determine the course of our lives.
Thanks to you, and others like you, thousands of seniors will continue to benefit from these wonderful programs such as Home Care, Protective Services, Meals on Wheels, Money Management, Long-Term Care Ombudsman, Companionship, Caregiver Support, Care Options Counseling and AgeWell West Roxbury, while enjoying much needed social interaction and care provided with compassion.
We are grateful for your support and look forward to sharing our future successes with you in our quarterly newsletter. In the meantime, I invite you to visit www.ethocare.org to see first-hand the many lives your contribution has touched and the difference your support is making.

NEW! HIV Self-Management Workshop
Positive Self-Management Program (PSMP) is an evidence-based program, developed by Stanford University, for people living with HIV. The program includes integrating medication regimens, learning to cope with emotions such as fear and isolation, incorporating daily exercise, better nutrition, and more. Positive Self-Management for HIV is designed to enhance regular treatment and HIV-specific education. Volunteer Workshop Leaders teach those living with HIV the skills to coordinate all the things needed to manage their health as well as to help them keep active in their lives.
