Emeritus at Hemet will be delivering care packages to local senior veterans or their surviving spouses during Memorial Day week in an initiative designed to assist them in staying safely in their homes
While sending care packages to troops overseas is a time-honored tradition, Emeritus at Hemet will be delivering them to local senior veterans or their surviving spouses during Memorial Day week in an initiative designed to assist them in staying safely in their homes.
The program is part of a national effort by Emeritus Senior Living to deliver more than 2,000 care packages and provide a helping hand with safety measures for seniors.
Called “Heroes Emeritus” in honor of the veterans’ service, the program is under way now and runs through Memorial Day, May 27.
The Heroes Emeritus care packages include nightlights, first aid kits, medication management containers, water bottles, healthy snacks and other items that make a senior’s daily life and home more secure. In addition to delivering the packages, the Emeritus team will perform a home safety check to ensure the living environment is free of any potential hazards.
Members of the public who would like to recommend a local senior veteran or veteran spouse for the Heroes Emeritus program can call Emeritus at Hemet at 951-929-5988 or email [email protected]
