Aging in Style with Lori Williams: Emelita’s Closet

I’m excited to announce that this month we are opening a community closet in Flower Mound where we will collect donated senior care items, and provide them to seniors who are in need.

Each week my team and I receive calls from families who have shower chairs, walkers etc. that were used by a family member who has now passed away. They don’t want to just throw out these items, but have no idea how to get them to someone who is in need.

There are some wonderful groups, such as Elderly Service Providers (ESP) of Denton County who maintain a closet in Pilot Point, but there wasn’t one in Flower Mound. Until now!

Emelita’s Closet namesake: Grandma Emelita.

I’ve decided to name the closet after my grandmother, Emelita, who is my inspiration and well-deserving of this honor. Throughout her life she helped others in need, and when diagnosed with dementia, she was cared for by a village of family members, friends and caregivers until her death at the age of 101.

Items we will be accepting at Emelita’s Closet will include:

  • Walkers
  • Canes
  • Wheelchairs
  • Unopened packages of adult diapers
  • Shower Chairs

More information will be coming as we move into our new office space this month, and put the finishing touches on Emelita’s Closet. Drop off and pick up will be by appointment only. If you have questions about donating items or are in need of items, please reach out to Lori at 214-783-1222 or contact us through our website
