Bringing Joy to Our Seniors

by michellerogers on September 1, 2009

The other day we were visiting a newer client and the pleasure of serving our seniors again became evident when our client was telling everyone how pretty and special she felt because our CAREGiver presented her with a small token, a beret for her hair.

It goes without saying extending kindness and offering small tokens make our seniors feel special.  I observe too many times our seniors are ignored and forgotten. 

Another great example of this wonderful gesture is our Be A Santa To A Senior Program.  This is a project that provides an opportunity for us to work with our local community to provide gifts for low-income seniors and/or seniors with no family.  In fact Home Instead owners across the country collectively deliver thousands of gifts.  Every year our hearts melt from the appreciation our seniors demonstrate after receiving an unexpected gift during the holiday season.

Small tokens and simple pleasures bring such joy to each of us.
