Tis the season to give back to aging adults in our community!

Home Instead’s Be Santa To A Senior Program finds new ways to spread cheer. Even the “BASTAS” Santa is wearing a mask this year!

“The Be A Santa To A Senior program brings so much joy to seniors in our community,” said Julie Ann Soukoulis, owner of the Rohnert Park Home Instead office. “Seniors are especially at risk for the feelings of isolation that we’ve all felt at some point during the pandemic and a simple gift can show them that they have been thought of, which is more important this year than ever.”

“We need the community’s help more than ever to make sure Seniors feel connected this year,” said Soukoulis. “This year we knew we had to find a way to spread holiday cheer to seniors and we are grateful for the community’s participation.”

Mercy Wellness Joins with Home Instead for "Be a Santa to a Senior"

MERCY WELLNESS has joined with Home Instead for the third year of participation in the "Be A Santa To A Senior" program! The commitment of Mercy Wellness and its most generous clientele are such a blessing to local seniors! They are kind enough to host TWO BASTAS Christmas Trees filled with "Ornaments" ready to be picked.

Visit either Mercy Wellness location to choose a gift ornament and provide much needed gift items for our isolated Seniors in Shilled Nursing, Memory Care and Alzheimer's facilities.

Mercy Wellness has two locations, one in Santa Rosa and the other in Cotati. You can find a BASTAS tree at either location!
