Home care agency to provide free home caregiving to disabled veterans
DENVER, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Homewatch CareGivers has announced its 2007 We Care For Veterans campaign to honor the nation's military by offering free caregiving services to qualified disabled veterans.
Participating Homewatch CareGivers locations across the nation are donating 20 hours each of free in-home care services to disabled U.S. military veterans of any conflict, including service members from the recent Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom campaigns.
Interested service members can sign up for the program through November 30th, 2007, by visiting http://www.HomewatchCareGivers.com -- where full details of the program are posted -- or by calling 1-800-777-9770.
"We were looking for a way that our company and our franchise partners could honor the military for their service and sacrifice, and draw attention to the huge deficit that currently exists in our nation in terms of veterans care," said Homewatch CareGivers President Leann Reynolds. "Caregiving is what we do, so what better way to make a difference than to provide our services to those who have sacrificed so much for our nation."
Known as the home care company that cares for veterans, Homewatch CareGivers was founded in 1980 by Paul Sauer, who is also a veteran. In addition to its regular services, Homewatch CareGivers gives back to the community through its Veterans Outreach Program, which provides free guidance and education about the Aid and Attendance benefit to veterans as well as surviving spouses.
"We're committed to giving back to the communities that we serve and we hope that our services can help vets and their families get on the road to recovery and rehabilitation," said Sauer
Sauer said the veteran might not be the only one that the 2007 Veterans Day Campaign helps out.
"We know that family members acting as caregivers often have the added responsibility of caring for children or aging parents," explained Sauer. "Sometimes it's these caregivers that just need a break from their regular responsibilities, and maybe this program will provide that opportunity."
With more than 25 years experience in the industry, Homewatch CareGivers offers more than 140 franchises in 35 U.S. states and seven countries. The company provides temporary and long-term home care to clients of all ages, including seniors, individuals with disabilities, and others who are recovering, rehabilitating or just need a little help.
