Seniors often participate and play significant roles in their communities. They volunteer, vote, and join clubs and other groups in large numbers. Among all age groups seniors devote the most time to volunteering and respond generously to charitable giving.
According to a study published by *AARP on volunteering and giving for adults age 45 or older, eighty-six percent of people ages 58-69 said they had volunteered in the last 12 months, and 80 percent of those ages 70 and over said they have volunteered.
We are proud to say that Casa Companion Homecare Solutions places just as much importance on community involvement and charitable giving as the senior population we serve. We are in the business of caring so it is only fitting that we extend that philosophy to our community.
Our Founder has long had a commitment to service to the community. During her senior year at San Diego State University, Christine Davies was nominated and received the Students that are Recognized for Service (STARS) Award. It was an honor provided only to 21 students out of roughly 400,000 within the California State University system.
Years later, Christine continues to hold that belief in giving back to the community. Casa Companion Homecare Solutions was founded on the belief of service and helping people. Not only helping people in their homes, but also helping the community at large. We do this by the following:
- Offering FREE Family Caregiving Courses
- Donating our time along with financial contributions to local community organizations
- Offering our full-time employees paid time off for volunteering with charitable organizations in the local community
This is only the beginning. We look forward to expanding our work in the community as we continue to grow our business and our work in the community.
