If you were granted one wish, what would it be?
At Home Care Assistance, our mission is to change the way the world ages. We emphasize quality of life just as much as longevity because we view aging as a rich and meaningful stage of life. To further our mission, we have partnered with Wish of a Lifetime, a non-profit organization with a similar dedication to fostering a positive, appreciative view of aging, and will be sponsoring one wish for a very deserving senior.
If you or a loved one is eligible to apply based on the criteria below, we invite you to submit your “wish of a lifetime” by filling out the form on this page. The deadline for wish submissions is Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern.
Who is eligible?
In order for your wish to be considered, you must be 65 years of age or older, a legal resident or citizen of the United States, unable to fulfill the wish on your own, not convicted of a felony and able to obtain approval from a doctor, if necessary.
When will the Wish Recipient be announced?
The Wish Recipient will be notified and announced toward the end of December. Depending on the nature of the wish, it may take anywhere from a few weeks to several months before it is granted. For example, if the senior’s wish is to visit Washington, D.C. to see the annual Cherry Blossom Festival, we would need to wait until March 20th which is the official kick-off day.
How do I apply?
You can fill out the Wish Application Form located on this page or pick-up a Wish Application from your local Home Care Assistance office. If you complete the application offline, you can either drop it off at the same Home Care Assistance location where you picked it up, or you can mail it to our Corporate Headquarters, which is located at:
Home Care Assistance
Attn: Wish Application
525 University Avenue, Suite 605
Palo Alto, CA 94301
All wish submissions must be received no later than Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern.
