Small care packages and home safety checks for senior veterans are a Memorial Day present from Emeritus Senior Living, the large Seattle-based company announced, with a request for people to recommend a senior veteran or veteran spouse for the “Heroes Emeritus” program.
The care packages will include nightlights, first-aid kits, medication management containers, healthy snacks, water bottles and other items the company said it hopes will make a senior’s daily life and home more secure.
Emeritus team delivery people will also perform a home safety check to identify potential hazards. Veterans and spouses “have done so much to keep our nation safe,” said Chris Hyatt, Emeritus executive vice president and chief operating officer. “We would like to do what we can to help keep these heroes safe in their senior years.”
