Home Instead Inc., the franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network, wants to honor Utah’s outstanding senior volunteer.

It is asking for nominations for its Salute to Senior Service program, which it established to recognize the contributions of adults 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service to their favorite causes.

Nominations will be accepted through March 31.

State winners then will be selected by popular vote at SalutetoSeniorService.com. Online voting will be open 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 Inc. has pledged to 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 Dave Parke, owner of one of the Home Instead Senior Care offices serving the Greater Salt Lake City area. "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.
