Home Instead sponsors recipe contest


Enter a favorite family recipe and a story about what makes the dish special to Home Instead Senior Care’s Craving Companionship Recipe Contest through Sept. 15.


The contest is part of the Craving Companionship program, launched to help seniors stay connected socially and eat more nutritiously. The program offers family caregivers tips and practical advice to encourage companionship and easy, healthy meals.


“Many seniors need help planning and preparing nutritious meals,” says Mahnaz Pourian, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care offi ce, serving the southeast metropolitan area. “Home Instead Senior Care research shows that 59 percent of seniors who live alone say they eat more nutritiously when family and friends are around. They really enjoy having that connection with someone.” Selected recipes and stories will be posted online, as well as in a “Homemade Memories Cookbook” to be available for purchase later this year. Proceeds will benefi t the nonprofi t Home Instead Senior Care Foundation. With an offi ce serving the SanTan Sun area, Home Instead Senior Care is the world’s largest provider of non-medical in-home care services for seniors, enabling seniors to live safely and comfortably in their own homes for as long as possible.
