People 65 and older numbered 46.2 million in 2014. They represented 14.5% of the U.S. population, approximately one in every seven Americans. As people grow older, they often need assistance. Caregivers help clients with self-care and everyday tasks. They also provide social supports and assistance that enable clients to participate in their communities.
This summer, One Legacy is celebrating ALL seniors and the wonderful caregivers who are (or have) taken care of loved ones at home or in senior communities.
We invite you to share stories about the special events and people in your lives. They can be submitted online with our simple online form. Stories can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to P. O. Box 1011, Edwardsville, IL 62025. We will be happy to post them for you.
Ideas for stories include special memories, overcoming hardships, recognition of a special caregiver and stories that inspire people.
One Legacy will also be offering a 20% discount on all services, including Family Legacy Sharing. Loved ones are invited to share their memories, and we will record their stories and create a photo DVD. It’s a great gift for the family!
Our popular Story Starter Cards can also be purchased at 20% off. They’re entertaining additions to family outings and vacations.
