One of the things we love and value best here at Home Care Assistance is being involved in our communities. What better way to do that than through supporting charities that benefit seniors?
If you’re going to support an organization, it is best to choose one with a solid reputation and well-trained professionals. That’s why we’re sharing our top 5 favorite senior charities! Let’s take a look below.
Meals on Wheels America
With a rapidly growing senior population, our local chapter of Meals on Wheels America is on the frontlines delivering meals to some of the most vulnerable of our population. No one is immune to some of the challenges aging brings about that take away from our independence.
Meals on Wheels America recognizes seniors are at risk of hunger and isolation, and so they have risen to the challenge of providing seniors’ nutritional and social needs.
Alzheimer’s Foundation of America
Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia affect many seniors and their families nationwide, and the Vermont chapter of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America has a specific mission. The organization aims to provide support, services, and education to individuals, families, and caregivers who have been affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia. They also work to fundraise for research, better treatments, and a cure.
Second Wind Dreams
This organization has a heartwarming and relatable goal: to fulfill dreams and change the perception of aging. No matter how young or how old we are, we all have dreams. Second Wind Dreams help make these dreams a reality to shed a positive light on aging and give seniors their “second wind.”
Honor Flight Network
The Honor Flight Network is a non-profit dedicated to honoring our elders who served and sacrificed in one of the best ways possible. Through an extensive network, the Honor Flight works to transport elderly Veterans to Washington D.C. so they can visit memorials that honor fellow service members and those who sacrificed.
Pets for the Elderly
If you have a furry friend, you know how quickly they become a member of the family. Pets for the Elderly is on a mission to provide seniors with companionship through pets…all while saving the lives of companion animals in shelters. Pets help seniors escape loneliness and find the affection and unconditional love they need and deserve.
