The third annual Salute to Senior Service contest is underway! We invite you to nominate a senior volunteer who dedicates at least 15 hours a month to helping others at SalutetoSeniorService.com between now and February 28, 2014.

Over the last three years, this program has highlighted how seniors can make a positive difference in their own quality of life by helping others. In fact, about three-fourths of U.S. seniors who volunteer say that staying active through volunteering helps them manage chronic health conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, depression, high blood pressure and dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. And 20 percent of seniors who volunteer say that their community service is the most important thing they do.

Because it is so important for seniors to be able to continue to contribute, this year we’ve introduced a new component to the program: free Give Back resources to keep even frail and isolated seniors engaged by volunteering in their communities. You can find them here.

At Home Instead Senior Care of the South East Valley, we are in constant awe of senior volunteers and the work that they do.

We can’t wait to start reading the stories for this year!
