We love and value being involved in our communities here at Home Care Assistance. One of the best ways for us to do that is to show support for charities that benefit senior citizens and encourage others to do the same. If you are looking for an organization to support, we suggest choosing one with a solid reputation and well-trained professionals. Here are our top 5 favorite senior charities.

Meals on Wheels America is serving the rapidly growing senior population on the frontlines! They deliver meals to one of the most vulnerable groups in our society, where no one is immune to many of the aging processes challenges that take away from our independence.
