  3. Arizona's Senior Hero - Thanks For Your Votes

The nominations are in, and now it is time for  Arizona’s Senior Hero to be chosen as part of Home Instead Senior Care’s Salute to Senior Service program. We would like to thank everyone that nominated a senior volunteer this year. More than 1,200 nominations were submitted, and we look forward to hearing the inspiring stories of senior volunteerism from all of the state Senior Heroes, as well as reveal the national Grand Prize Winner in May.

Senior volunteers benefit greatly from the experience of giving back, and their service is invaluable to the to the organizations they help. Research shows that seniors who volunteer are far less likely to suffer from loneliness and isolation; volunteering can also help seniors manage their chronic conditions because it requires them to be social and active – taking their mind off of the condition and doing something positive for their health, as well as the community.

Be on the lookout for the announcement of the Arizona Senior Hero within the next several weeks. In the meantime, if you would like to be inspired, read about some of the outstanding senior volunteers who have been nominated for our Salute to Senior Service Senior Hero award. http://www.salutetoseniorservice.com/senior-heroes/senior-hero-nominations/
