Home Social Services

Home Social Services

PTCH (Pilgrim Terrace Co-op Homes) is now a stand alone Non-profit for Public Benefit and a Social Service Provider. We have much to offer the Santa Barbara community and our residents. Although, our residents are our first priority there are many programs we are developing and currently offering to the general public. (see PTCH)

Almost 90% of Americans over the age of 65 have one or more degenerative disorders Remember ONE NUTRITIONAL MEAL per day can significantly reduce the risks of developing these diseases.

Social Services

A Resident Service Coordinator (RSC) is available to connect residents with assistance programs that reduce their costs and support their independence. We help those that need it access medical equipment, in-home help, and other supportive services. When needed, the RSC also advocates for residents to outside agencies. A computer lab with three apple computers is available to all residents along with tutoring upon request.

Transportation

Handicapped Accessible Van

A handicapped accessible minivan transports residents to scheduled dialysis, operations, and medical appointments. In addition, we have a 9-passenger wheelchair accessible van that takes residents grocery shopping every Friday and every other Tuesday. Transportation is also offered to field trips in Santa Barbara, including museums, nature walks, and special events. In the coming year, PTCH hopes to purchase a newer passenger van with better fuel efficiency and more seating.

Volunteer Service

Pilgrim Terrace has volunteer residents that consistently help with setting up for birthday parties and other special events for our non profit. As well as our residents volunteers, we have volunteers from the community volunteer their time and there own unique skill to make our events the best for our residents enjoyment. Feel free to contact us by clicking Icon above or calling the phone number on the top of the website.

Nutrition

Healthy Meals

A balanced lunch is prepared each weekday and available at no charge to residents using vegetables grown in the PTCH tower gardens.  In addition to the entrée of the day, it includes a self-serve soup and salad bar and freshly made fruit juices. The overall mood at Pilgrim Terrace has drastically improved since the lunch program began last February.  In addition to prepared lunches, the Food Bank brings their brown bag program to Pilgrim Terrace twice a month where low-income seniors can pick up a free bag of groceries. Every Wednesday there is an opened meeting with our non denominational Chaplin for any spiritual food they may need.

Activity & Socialization

Client and Staff Socialization

In addition to the nutritional benefit, residents benefit from the short walk to the cafe and the social interaction with residents and guests.  Exercise classes are provided onsite by the non-profit to increase circulation and energy, as well as strengthen bones and muscles, all of which help prevent falls.  We encourage residents to interact with one another by hosting a birthday party each month to celebrate and distribute gifts, generously provided by the Unity Shoppe.  There are also special holiday parties, music events, movies, games, and art sessions to encourage community and spark a positive outlook.
