We all know seniors who do so much for our community,” said Jeff Huber, president, Home Instead, Inc. “These silent heroes give selflessly, expecting nothing in return. And yet, their contributions often make a difference not only to the organizations they serve, but in changing how the public views growing older.”

Senior care professionals and those who work at hospitals, senior care facilities and other places where seniors volunteer are encouraged to nominate older adults. So, too, are family caregivers and the adult children of aging parents. Older adults also may self-nominate.

Nominations will be accepted through March 31, 2013.

The winner in each state will receive $500 and one national winner will receive $5,000 to donate to the winners charities of choice. Their stories will be posted on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame.

Sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care, the annual recognition is part of the Salute to Senior Service program which recognizes senior volunteers for the many contributions they make in their local communities.
