Home Care Assistance Partners with Wish of a Lifetime

Despite the physical limitations I am faced with every day, there are still dreams to be dreamed and goals to be achieved, said Sonia, 76

Home Care Assistance of Fairfield County, a leading provider of in-home care for seniors, has partnered with Wish of a Lifetime, a non-profit organization dedicated to fulfilling wishes of seniors who have overcome tremendous challenges over the course of their lives. Both companies are committed to changing the way that society views aging and improving the quality of life of seniors across North America. To this end, Home Care Assistance is proud to sponsor one wish for a very deserving senior. Wish of a Lifetime has already fulfilled life changing wishes for hundreds of seniors across the country. One such wish recipient was Tom, a man who had always been fascinated by cultures around the world, but was unable to travel because of his end-stage COPD. His wish was to visually "visit" various countries through postcards; he received nearly 3,000 postcards from all 50 states and more than 90 countries, which gave him the “courage to go on”. He is now off hospice and doing so well that his doctors say he could live another 20 years! If you or a loved one is eligible to apply based on the criteria below, you can submit your “Wish of a Lifetime” by visiting http://www.HomeCareAssistance.com/wishpossible. All wish submissions must be received no later than Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern.

“Because our companies’ missions are so closely aligned, partnering with Wish of a Lifetime made perfect sense,” said Erik Gans, owner of Home Care Assistance Fairfield County. “We are so thrilled about this opportunity to live out our mission to change the way the world ages and give back to seniors.”

In order to be considered, wish nominees must fulfill the following criteria. They must:

  • Be a minimum age of 65
  • Be a legal resident or citizen of the United States of America
  • Be unable to fulfill the wish independently
  • Be capable of experiencing the wish
  • Not be convicted of a felony
  • Be able to obtain approval from a doctor, if necessary

“Despite the physical limitations I am faced with every day, there are still dreams to be dreamed and goals to be achieved,” said Sonia, 76, who reconnected with the world of ice skating.
