SaddleBrooke Seniors
There are many web sites out there with useful information on services
and organizations. As we discover more we'll add them to this list.
Every resident should have one to allow 911 fast, secure
access if you are unable to unlock the door. There is a
one time charge of $65 to GRFD for the box. The Senior
Village will install it for free. Click

Life Care Planning - Critical Forms Everyone Needs
In addition to a general (financial) power of attorney (POA),
everyone needs critical health care forms such as a health
care POA, a mental health care POA, a living will (known as
an "advance directive"), and some others. If you don't have
them, you can download the forms and instructions from the
AZ Attorney General's web site. Once you have completed
forms, you can register them at the AZ Secretary of State's
office so that a doctor or hospital can access them if needed.

Free Medical Equipment Loan Program
For many years SaddleBrooke has had a free short term
medical equipment loan program. Recently it was almost
discontinued because of a shortage of storage space and
volunteers. The Community Church has now stepped in to
rescue the program and continue this important community
service. Please click
HERE for more information. You can
call the church office at
825-5394 weekday mornings to
arrange for loaners or make donations.
