Founded in 1968, Eskaton is now the largest nonprofit community-based organization serving seniors in the Greater Sacramento area. Our dedicated team members provide services and support for nearly 12,000 individuals annually who live in our communities or participate in our comprehensive Home Support Services. Eskaton’s difference lies in our broad array of choices and affordable options to engage and support people living in their own homes, as well as those who choose to live in one of our communities. Our positive reputation extends to our signature life-enriching programs, innovative health and wellness initiatives, professional staff training and development and generous philanthropy. These, along with our nonprofit status are Eskaton’s distinguishing factors.
The Nonprofit Difference: Nonprofit organizations help build community through volunteers and philanthropy, and are frequently the social responsibility conduit for other businesses. Profits are reinvested, not distributed to shareholders. They have transparent business practices and their leaders are accessible. Nonprofits generally have higher staffing levels and longer tenure among employees. Long-standing, establ...ished nonprofits often have resident assistance funds for those who outlive their financial resources. They have intrinsic value that even the best for-profit chains cannot offer; and during times of rapid and radical change like today, reputation and experience matter.
For you, your family, friends and neighbors … Eskaton is transforming the aging experience.
