Nominations sought in senior-care salute

SEQUIM — Home Instead Senior Care, a national organization which serves Jefferson and Clallam counties through an office in Sequim, is seeking to honor the contributions of adults 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service to their favorite causes.

Nominations for outstanding senior volunteers will be accepted until March 31.

State winners then will be selected by popular vote at

Online voting will take place from April 15 to April 30.

From those state winners, a panel of senior care experts will pick the national Salute to Senior Service honoree.

Home Instead will donate $500 to each of the state winners' favorite nonprofit organizations, and their stories will be posted on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame.

In addition, $5,000 will be donated to the national winner's nonprofit charity of choice.

“We all know seniors who do so much for our community,” said Sandy Boughner, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office at 675 N. 5th Ave. in Sequim, which provides services throughout the North Olympic Peninsula.

“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.”
