At Home Care Assistance, we truly love and see an enormous value in getting involved with our local communities. Supporting charities that benefit senior citizens is one of our favorite ways to be engaged! We’d love to share some of our favorite senior charities with you. If you are looking to support an organization, a solid reputation and well-trained professionals go a long way in making a difference!
Meals on Wheels America
No one is unaffected by the process of aging and some of the challenges that can take away from our independence as we get older. Meals on Wheels America recognizes this, and they’ve been working on the frontlines to deliver meals to the nation’s rapidly growing senior population. They are working hard to make sure at-risk seniors receive the proper social and nutritional needs!
Alzheimer’s Foundation of America
Seniors, their families, and caregivers are affected often by Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, both common in older adults. But the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America is on a mission to provide support, services, and education to anyone who is affected by this disease, while constantly fundraising for better treatments, more research, and ultimately, a cure.
Second Wind Dreams
Seniors deserve a “second wind,” and that’s exactly what Second Wind Dreams is here to do. The organization operates to fulfill the dreams of seniors and challenge our perception of getting older. Because now matter how old we are, we all have dreams.
Honor Flight Network
Our Veteran seniors who have served and sacrificed are the focus of the Honor Flight Network. Their goal is to use their extensive network to transport the elder Veterans all the way to Washington D.C., where they can visit memorials that honor all the service members who sacrificed for our nation.
Pets for the Elderly
Pets for the Elderly is on a quest to unite seniors with pets to create a heartwarming companionship. The organization saves the lives of companion animals in shelters, while seniors are able to overcome loneliness and receive the unconditional love they need and deserve.
