Salute to Senior Service
For a vast majority of seniors who volunteer, their community service helps define who they are. According to research conducted for the Home Instead Senior Care® network, nearly 100 percent of North American senior volunteers say that, when compared to other things they do in their lives, volunteering is important. One in five senior volunteers says it is the most important thing they do.
The Salute to Senior Service® Contest recognizes everyday seniors for the impact they make in their communities. This contest search for active senior volunteers is conducted by Home Instead Senior Care-Pittsford.
Inspiring Healthy Aging
Our goal is to help seniors to stay healthy and active as they age, which many do through volunteering and the support of home care services. We also want to encourage a positive outlook on aging, and what better way to do so than by inviting everyone in the area to personally recognize seniors who set an inspiring example for people of all ages?
