Elderly Care and Senior Living Support Services

About Us

SeniorBuddies.org is a non-profit organization 

that brings together our

elderly senior community with

our young special needs community

and their mentors

 

This "buddy program" is a very natural pairing of sometimes lonely seniors with the

genuine joy and happiness that

our special needs youth

enjoys sharing with others; and their mentors.  

 

This youth group is

always longing for friends and purpose.

Our program provides both the friends and purpose they seek,among their mentor peers and the elderly seniors that they spend quality time helping.

 

JC………Just Cares! 

J.C. (James Cantwell Pujals) was born on June 12, 1999

He was our second son who we were so grateful to welcome and embrace because my wife was an only child and

she hoped desperately that Peter (our first) would not have to endure life’s burdens all alone like she did.  

 

James was nicknamed JC from the start as a gesture honoring her father who also nicknamed my wife,

with initials; she is CC (Catherine Cantwell).  

 

It’s a good thing that it worked out that way because JC turned out to have Down Syndrome

and he is now able (20 years later) to spell and sign his name! 

 

We’re not sure why, but his signature is “JC-7”….go figure! 

Well, he also cheers for both the Packers and the Bears as his favorite teams….go figure!

Instead of someone who Peter (our oldest)

could share life’s burdens with,

he now had another major burden to care for in his future

…..at least, so we thought. 

A few years later, we were blessed with our third son William, who completed our family and played a major role in SeniorBuddies.org! 

 

And then, while observing the three of them grow up

we eventually realized that

JC would provide more value and support for his brothers

than the "burden" that we initially thought

we had saddled them with...

He has also been our “buddy” (or we, his) for years!

JC’s value to our family has been so great, so inspiring that we have wanted to

share it in some form with others.

JC…..he Just Cares!

So…....this has been a very long journey that provided the backdrop for SeniorBuddies.org!
