Our Social Purpose

Our social purpose starts in Waretown, NJ but it carries on across the world.

The Home Instead network works to create a world where people own their aging journeys. We want all generations to age on their own terms, authentic to who they are as unique individuals, and connected to things that provide them with purpose.

This vision drives us to expand the world’s capacity to care.

Giving Back

Home Instead helps older adults age with greater hope and success whether they're our clients or not. Because we believe everyone deserves to age with grace and dignity, we strive to make that vision a reality by creating a world that's ready to care for each other.

From our involvement with the Walk to End Alzheimer's or our holiday give-back program, Be a Santa to a Senior, Home Instead is out to make a difference.

2023 - Be A Santa To A Senior Program

The "Be a Santa to a Senior" program is back this year and it is Home Instead’s 20th anniversary of providing gifts to seniors in need! Many "Be a Santa to a Senior" trees are spread throughout our local communities, at the locations listed below. The trees are decorated with ornaments that list a local senior in need and the item you can buy them. Select a bulb from a tree, purchase the item(s) listed and place the bulb and unwrapped gift(s) together in the designated collection area.

Home Instead and community volunteers will wrap and deliver the gifts! The last day for collections will be December 15, 2023.

You can also participate by buying gifts online from the "Be a Santa to a Senior" Amazon Gift List!
