Short-term care is as invaluable for seniors as it is for their families. Respite care, as short-term care is also known, offers an abundance of relief to family caregivers. The well-being of the senior is as important as the emotional state of the family caregiver.
Last month during its annual franchise conference in Nashville, Assisting Hands Home Care joined the fight against hunger and hosted a Hunger Project, organized by Feeding Children Everywhere. Approximately 100 Assisting Hands franchisees, national office staff and family members divided into seven teams of 16 to work in assembly-line fashion. With music booming, lentils flying and bells ringing in a sea of hairnets, the volunteers set out to package and pack 25,000 healthy meals for Middle Tennessee seniors.
