According to The Senior Source President and CEO Stacey Paddock Malcolmson,
“During the holiday season, the gifts of time spent with friends and family often bring the most joy. For many seniors, though, the holidays can be a lonely time. The Senior Source works diligently to ensure older adults are not forgotten. Carolyn Moore best describes how we touch the lives of thousands of seniors each year:
“’For 10 years, my mom, Sarah Cooper, proudly volunteered by visiting with frail elderly individuals in their own homes, helping them maintain their independence, and connecting them with their community.
“’Rather quickly and unexpectedly, my mom’s own health began to decline and she came to need assistance. The Senior Source was able to step in and match her with her own Senior Companion to care for her, just as she had done for others. Her volunteer helps her around the house, takes her to her weekly dialysis appointment, and perhaps most importantly, provides much needed companionship and connection.
“’My wish is that friends like you support The Senior Source’s Senior Companion Program to ensure that clients like my mom always have a companion by their side. Thank you!
