ONE OF OUR NATION'S OLDEST LIVING FEMALE WWII VETS TO RECEIVE FIRST PROTOTYPE HOME FOR THE NATION
© REIGNITING THE LIGHT OF LIFE FOR VETERANS!
METAMORA, MICHIGAN – At 101 years of age, “Toni” Elmasian has not yet finished her service to this country. Toni is slated to be the first recipient of a prototype home which will revolutionize care for Veterans, elderly and needy throughout our nations communities.
Cherishing her country Toni wholeheartedly joined the United Stated Navel Reserve in 1941 at the tender age of 21 becoming part of the force of “Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service”. Proud to wear the uniform of a WAVE she often speaks humbly with thankfulness for the honor of having been one among many who felt called to serve, and aid in helping to guard and protect our freedoms. Having studied to be a concert pianist, this Navy Wave laid down her dreams, choosing rather to serve her country to be used in the war efforts to defend home and nation.
Typing an astounding 100 words a minute, this Wave was sent to Washington where she shared living quarters in Navel barracks for the duration of the war. Exceptional secretarial skills allowed her to aid and assist top Navy personal who trusted her with many every day duties as well as essential secret tasks, including the difficult duty of issuing written assignments to be delivered to war heroes being appointed to posts. Involved in protected secretive works, to present day she remains faithfully tight lipped concerning much of her activities because she was sworn to silence. In her spare moments Toni gave from the heart increasing service in another part of the war effort by joining in and volunteering further to organize both military women and housewives for collection of necessary supplies to be re-purposed for the war. Rubber from tires, metal and other scraps, even cardboard which was used to make shoes, was gathered to support supply and demand.
After the war Toni married and mothered 6 children. Five months into her 5th pregnancy she survived a horrible house fire in which she was severely burned over 70 % of her body, suffering multiple painful skin-grafts and other surgeries. Sadly she also lived through the brutal murder of her only brother, a career Army decorated WWII, Korean and Vietnam war Veteran, and endured so much more, yet Toni still faced life with the gentle smile and soft spirit she continues to carry today.
Turning 101 years of age in April 2021 Toni, as well as all our Veterans, needs and deserves top notch loving assistance and care. Desiring to care for and keep her in a loving family home environment, Toni's daughter and son-in-law have slated her to be the first recipient of a transforming answer to our growing senior, needy and homeless community concerns. Her innovative dwelling will be forerunner to other individual, as well as entire community settlements. The uniqueness of the project covers so much more than building an addition on to a standard home. Meeting and exceeding FEMA's highest standards with severe weather resistant security it also meets high standards of affordability for our growing elderly as well as others in need of care. The homes are time tested; proven tornado, hurricane, and earthquake, mold, disease resistant, as well as fire defiant, lasting throughout decades as opposed to conventional dwellings designed to last mere years. Amazingly, the builds will serve to secure care for future generations with a 500 year lifespan.
With this effort all involved have important goals in mind; among them that no Veteran or needy loved one, friends, family or others caring for them and even future generations be left behind without opportunity to access necessary aid, compassionate attendance and to have their needs met with excellence of service far more affordably than alternative care systems currently supply. Plans do not stop with simply the construction of singular homes, but include creating self-sustainable communities that will allow for tenderhearted aid for those most vulnerable in our communities as well as education and unique job opportunities and education for caretakers and provisions for our upcoming generations .
Reaching to impact our world helping to make it safer, healthier and more secure by developing and delivering innovative solutions to improve, optimize and promote quality of life for the needy, while educating aiding and equipping communities and caretakers nationwide to meet many of the current challenges we as a society all face together.
Largely due to personal inconsiderate agendas, useless outsourcing, administration costs and more that can be re-directed to support over burdened families caring for the overwhelming needs of their loved ones in desperate need of assistance, the plight our current and future heroic Veterans face is disheartening. Actual red tape monthly costs to care for our Veterans are ASTOUNDING. Stated privily by a Veteran official briefed with details of the program; "This will save Government and taxpayers billions annually".
In the interest and welfare of entire community care needs, past present and future, we have broken ground setting foundations for a first state of the art prototype to serve nationwide. As an extension of the “Transitional Resource Center” vision we continue with construction of this initiative, containing overwhelming benefits. Though this first model will house and care for one of the oldest surviving Veterans of WWII, it is necessary to mention the model will relieve many issues our society is both financially and personally burdened by and will be made available to all those in need, freely serving entire community. The cutting edge structure, being filmed, documents guidance to be easily replicated across the country. Fresh development designs, complimented by years of research, development, and feverish battling through red tape has helped addresses every area of care taking lack. While providing secure FEMA approved affordable housing, education, jobs, financial stability, protection of lifetime accumulated assets, and ability to increases assets, the fresh program provides superior hands on in home care as well as alternatives to nursing home and other programs for not only this but also future generations. A one time investment covering decades beyond a lifetime proves to be less than the cost of caring for one individual in a nursing home for one year, (Nation average now $96,000 annually) without the threat of loosing a lifetime of hard earned belongings.
We have the attention of the Secretary of Veterans Affairs Office as well as other organizations recognizing with nearly 14% of our homeless population being Veterans and more than 50% of our homeless reaching the over age 50 age mark, we are long past due for innovative changes that embrace bring change to hurting individuals and social demands with more permanent solutions, delivering our society and government from enabling programs and wasted tax dollars to flourishing abundantly by turning our challenges to work on behalf of those in need, their families and caretakers.
Some 65 million people, in our United States alone, need in home care. Not to mention those placed in nursing homes, unable to be cared for or care for themselves. Many family caretakers are forced into unemployment to become full time providers as they struggle to get help for parents or others unable to care for themselves. Nursing home shortages, long waiting lists and in-affordability, leave all involved limited choices. From the pains some of us are painfully aware of concerning what our elderly, disadvantaged, their families, friends and loved ones go through struggling to provide care for our disadvantaged, we discover a greater good for all can be produced. We can not afford to leave those in need of necessities unattended to.
None of us is exempt from the issues surrounding us. As together we enter the future facing accumulating human hardships that are spiraling out of control from homelessness all the way to nursing home and in home care deficiencies for our nation's elderly and disabled, our goal is to bring new life out of what has held the stench of death through stale inadequate systems.
