A Senior’s Wish is our chance to celebrate and brighten seniors’ lives with an opportunity they might never have been able to pursue on their own. It's our way of giving back to the community that has supported us these past 15 years.
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) September 15, 2016
Comfort Keepers of Greater Charlotte, NC has established A Senior’s Wish, honoring local, deserving seniors who have given so much of themselves to their friends, family and community. A Senior’s Wish will grant well-deserving seniors the wish of a lifetime, something on their bucket list, something they might have thought it was too late to pursue. The deadline to submit a nomination is September 30, 2016.
On behalf of the worthy senior, a nominating friend or family member can request a number of different types of wishes. These might include: reconnecting loved ones, attending events or concerts, participating in a former hobby or passion that is now a challenge (ride in classic car, horseback riding), the purchase of a computer to connect virtually with family, installation of a wheelchair ramp, renewing wedding vows or maybe even help planting a garden.
“A Senior’s Wish is our chance to celebrate and brighten seniors’ lives with an opportunity they might never have been able to pursue on their own,” said Lori Eberly, Comfort Keepers owner. “It’s our way of giving back to the community that has supported us these past 15 years.”
Family and friends are encouraged to submit nominations for admirable seniors to our home care team. Nominations will be accepted August 1 – September 30 and can be submitted online at Comfort Keepers of Charlotte. You can also request a paper copy be mailed to you by calling Comfort Keepers at (704) 594-1498.
To be eligible, each nominee must be a minimum age of 65, a resident of Cabarrus, Catawba, Davidson, Davie, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Rowan, or a contiguous county, unable to fulfill the wish on their own, and capable of experiencing the wish.
Finalists will be selected through a panel of judges formed by Comfort Keepers and will be chosen based on adherence to age and residence requirements, integrity of the nominee, senior’s community involvement, impact that granting of the wish would have on the nominee, and the ability and practicality of administering the wish. Winners will then be selected by review of written entries and/or phone interviews.
The deadline to submit a nomination is September 30, 2016. Winners will be announced in October.
