Home Instead Senior Care Offices serving Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, Bentonville and Bella Vista are inviting the community to come together to provide gifts and holiday cheer to seniors.
This is the program’s 13th year and last year, more than 550 local seniors received gifts.
“Be a Santa to a Senior helps bring comfort and a smile to many seniors. It shows them that people care about them and see them as an important part of the community,” said Mark Stanley, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care offices in Rogers. “Social isolation is a concern among seniors and the holidays often intensify feelings of distance and loneliness. When we deliver the gifts and spend some time with them, it makes a big difference.”
Go to one of the participating locations listed below and look for the Be a Santa to a Senior tree on display through December 10th. Each tree will be decorated with ornaments featuring seniors’ first names and their desired gifts.
Holiday shoppers can choose an ornament, buy the requested gift and return it to the store with the ornament attached.
Be a Santa to Senior trees can be found at these locations:
– Avenir Memory Care, 1967 W. Truckers Dr, Fayetteville.
– Frisco Station Mall, 100 N. Dixieland Rd., Rogers.
– Schmieding Center for Senior Health & Education, 2422 N. Thompson St., Springdale.
– Village House Adult Center, 1801 Forest Hills Blvd., Suite 206, Bella Vista.
