New board member brings strategic and development expertise in senior-care and nonprofits
FALLBROOK – The Foundation for Senior Care announced the appointment of Michael McHale as the newest member of the Board of Directors, effective immediately.
McHale brings to the table more than 23 years of service in the older adult care, long-term care and hospice industries, as well as extensive experience working with large and small nonprofit groups. With expertise in executive leadership, development and management of senior-focused endeavors, McHale is currently the president and CEO of St. Paul's Senior Services – San Diego's largest nonprofit senior care organization.
"We are excited to have Mr. McHale join our already excellent group of board members," Gail Jones, president of the Foundation for Senior Care Board of Directors, said. "His knowledge and experience in senior care is just the addition we need to fulfill our goals of building meaningful and sustainable programs, collaborating with like-minded organizations and providing services that are truly needed and make a real difference in the lives of seniors in our community."
As a board member, McHale's role is to work alongside the other members and foundation leadership to develop strategies and initiatives to grow programs and services that are in-step with today's older adult needs, but also adaptable as the older adult population and nature of care evolves.
The board of directors has individuals with expertise across the professional fields of healthcare, finance, fundraising, caregiving, hospice care, real estate and business administration. The addition of McHale brings the number of board members to 11 – all of whom are committed to the future of the Foundation for Senior Care and to fulfilling the mission to help older adults and adults with disabilities in the community maintain physical and mental wellbeing, age-in-place gracefully and receive the services and compassion they deserve.
"The issues affecting older adults are too large for any one organization to tackle. It will take nonprofit organizations coming together to collectively solve these challenges," McHale said. "I'm grateful for the opportunity to work with the Foundation for Senior Care to build collaborations and find impactful solutions to address these concerns."
Established in 1979 and serving Fallbrook, Bonsall, Rainbow and De Luz, the Foundation for Senior Care offers programs and services to help older adults and adults with disabilities stay safe, live independently for as long as possible and age with dignity. Services include transportation and grocery delivery, resource and referral advocacy, hospital-to-home recovery support, community education focused on older adult issues and daytime caregiving that offers adults of any age a safe and trusted place to experience companionship and engaging activities.
