Getting engaged in our communities starts at the local level. We love to be as involved as possible, and one of the ways we do that best is by supporting various charities that specifically benefit senior citizens! At Home Care Assistance, we are proud to support charities with strong reputations and many well-trained professionals. Take a look below and learn more about our top 5 favorites.
Meals on Wheels America
Many of our elderly today in America are a part of a rapidly growing population of seniors who are at-risk of both hunger and isolation. They are among the vulnerable and have trouble getting their nutritional and social needs met. But Meals on Wheels America is working to close that gap! They deliver meals to these seniors to help them restore some of the independence they lost.
Alzheimer’s Foundation of America
All over the nation, seniors, their families, and caregivers are suffering from the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. These diseases can be detrimental, and people are in need of support. The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America is here to provide that support, along with various services and education, fundraising, greater research efforts, better treatments, and, ultimately – a cure!
Second Wind Dreams
When you wish upon a star, it makes no difference who you are! Old or young, we all have dreams. Second Wind Dreams is helping seniors’ dreams come true! They’re here to change the perception of aging and to give seniors their “second wind.”
Honor Flight Network
Through this non-profit organization, senior Veterans are able to travel to Washington D.C. for a very special purpose. They visit the war memorials that and pay their respects to their fellow service members who sacrificed. All thanks to the vast network of the Honor Flight Network!
Pets for the Elderly
Do you have a furry friend? If so, then you that they’re more like a member of the family! Pets for the Elderly is on a quest to give seniors true companionship through pets. This starts with saving the lives of companion animals in shelters! Pets allow seniors to escape loneliness and receive the affection and love they are worthy of.
