December 2023

Mountain Explorers


The holidays are one of the most joyful times of year here at MountainCare, but we know that December brings added stress for our caregivers. It can be challenging balancing caregiving responsibilities with an even busier schedule full of social and financial obligations. 

Thanks to two generous donors, MountainCare has scholarship funds available to provide extra support this holiday season. Funds can be requested to cover the cost of Mountain Explorers days of attendance this month, or to add additional days (when space is available).

If you are feeling overwhelmed, please do not hesitate to reach out. We're here to help you get through the season with a little more joy and a little less stress!

To request scholarship days, contact Sunny Larson, Development Manager, by replying to this email or calling 828-277-3399.

We follow the inclement weather decision of AB-TECH Community College. To find out if we are closed, it is up to you to check one of these sources:

  • WLOS (TV, Facebook, or online) - Look for the AB-TECH announcement
  • Call our main line at 828-277-3399 and listen for the message after 6:30am
  • Sign up to receive text notifications via the Remind app

Note: If inclement weather occurs during a school break, school closings for holidays, or a teacher workday, MountainCare Leadership will make the decision and caregivers will be notified.
