Community-Based Initiative

Community-Based Initiative

The benefits of aging in place include freedom, independence and privacy in the comforts of familiar surroundings, all of which can improve quality of life and happiness. But as we age, we also naturally encounter a lack of mobility, social isolation, and limited activity due to health and medical concerns. It’s all a part of life, but at Hands to Heart, we don’t believe the two need be mutually inclusive.

While our homecare services make aging in place a safer and more comfortable experience, we also know the importance of staying involved even with age. At Hands to Heart, we deeply encourage participation in social pastimes and activities that stimulate, inspire and rekindle a lifestyle of connection. Our Community-Based Initiative invites seniors to take part in a cozy, enthusiastic and engaging activity where they can learn and practice knitting among friends and caregivers.  

Knitting is a wonderful source of leisure, creativity and companionship that’s often lacking with age. It’s also an opportunity for natural therapy in the form of cognitive stimulation, exercise of fine motor skills, socialization, and other benefits so important to both mental and physical preservation.

We provide all the materials and assistance they need to knit a variety of creative items under professional caregiver supervision. Not only can seniors take joy in their creations, but we’re also excited to help them donate their crafts to people in need. Through our community initiative, Hands to Heart personally delivers crochet items to private homes and nursing homes, and returns to pick them up for delivery to any preferred cause. Knitted items are a beloved favorite of comfort and warmth among homeless shelters, orphanages, charity organizations, and more.

Through charitable participation, seniors can experience a sense of pride and dignity in knowing that they are still very much a part of the community. In this way, seniors can enjoy all the benefits of aging in place, while always having a place in the world.
