Together, through your generous donations we can meet and exceed our goals to increase social enrichment for our elderly at risk.
Helping Hands of Yuma has been advocating and striving to meet the needs of our at risk elderly population for nearly 23 years.
We recognize that our socially isolated older adults are at risk for poor physical, emotional, mental and social health. Many elderly only get out of their homes for medical appointments and grocery shopping and go without essential "fun" social interactions.
Without providing much needed social interaction, our seniors can suffer a dramatic decline in their overall health. Helping Hands desires to focus on our elderly's need to have more social time, activity involvement and peer to peer interaction in order to attain the quality of life necessary to truly live independent fulfilling lives.
In order to address social isolation, Helping Hands intends to increase and launch new social events, activities and interaction through community senior friendly classes, activities, birthday recognition, opportunities to give back to their community, and increased one on one social interaction program through friendly phone calls and friendly visits.
We can reduce the at risk status of our elderly by implementing social awareness and providing additional opportunities for group and individual interaction.
This is why we need your help. Together, through your generous donations we can meet and exceed our goals to increase social enrichment for our elderly at risk.
