Members of the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club and other volunteers were out in force Saturday helping spruce up the Elder and Adult Day Services (EADS) facility in Bellevue.

The work was part of a districtwide “Service Above Self” day involving Rotarians from across the greater Seattle area. EADS is a community-based program designed to meet the needs of adults with physical and/or cognitive impairments and chronic health conditions.

“We are truly thankful to the Rotary District 5030 for their gift of completing a huge service project to benefit the EADS Bellevue Center,” said Jan Nestler, Founder and Executive Director for EADS. “The need for these services is crucial.”

EADS has health centers in Bellevue, Issaquah, Des Moines, and Bremerton.

As a not-for-profit, mission based organization; EADS serves everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. In 2006, EADS provided nearly $500,000 in uncompensated care. The health, social, rehabilitative and related support services provided allows program participants to remain living independently in their home communities for as long as possible.
