We love and value being engaged with our local communities we serve here at Home Care Assistance. One of the ways we are able to show our support is through backing charities on a mission to help senior citizens. Below we are sharing our top 5 favorite senior charities with you, and each organization has an excellent reputation within the community and has many well-trained professionals assisting them!
Meals on Wheels America
Did you know America has a rapidly growing senior population who are at-risk of hunger and isolation? This is one of our nation’s most vulnerable groups, and Meals on Wheels America has risen to the challenge of helping them. By delivering meals to seniors, this charity helps to provide seniors with the proper nutrition and making sure they get the social interaction they need.
Alzheimer’s Foundation of America
The effects of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia are far-reaching, affecting individuals, families, and caregivers alike. Seniors and their families all over the nation are need of support, and the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America is answering their call with services and education, too. The AFA gives the support needed while fundraising for more research, treatments, and a cure!
Second Wind Dreams
Here’s something we can all relate to: Having a dream and wishing for it to come true! Second Wind Dreams is helping seniors realize their dreams, all while changing the way we perceive the aging process. Seniors are getting their “second wind” thanks to this organization!
Honor Flight Network
Meet the non-profit that is dedicated to honoring our Veteran elders who served and sacrificed for our country! The Honor Flight Network helps seniors travel to Washington D.C. through their extensive network and visit among the many memorials that pay homage to other fallen service members.
Pets for the Elderly
Our furry friends are more like our family! Pets for the Elderly recognize this and help seniors unite with a pet to provide companionship…all while saving the life of a companion animal in a shelter! Seniors with pets are less likely to suffer from loneliness, and they receive the love and affection they deserve.
