Home Instead Senior Care provides for those in need

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

When cold temperatures settle on the South Plains it brings a number of risks for those that struggle to keep warm.

Senior Citizens and those with disabilities are at risk for severe illnesses or even death as a result of the freezing temperatures.

The Home Instead Senior Care group works to provide blankets and heaters to the elderly or disabled that could use a little extra help.

Donations from the community are also encouraged. All donations are compiled into the group's Silver Star room and then distributed out to Adult Protective Services clients.

Donations needed include:

  • Gloves
  • Socks
  • Hats
  • Scarves
  • Blankets
  • Space Heaters
  • Hand Warmers
  • Slippers

In order to be eligible adult protective services, clients must have experienced some kind of neglect or abuse, or be above the age of 65.

Items are being collected at the group's office location at 6121 69th street (in the B-4 building behind Longhorn Steakhouse).

Thursday, Nov. 14, also begins the Home Instead Senior Care's ‘Be a Santa to a Senior' event.

The event allows the public to sign up to donate money by purchasing a paper ornament. Ornaments can be purchased at the main branch of City Bank, on the Marsha Sharp Freeway, and at K-Mart on University.

For questions and comments contact Betsy Ward with Home Instead Senior Care by phone at 806-698-5575 or e-mail at betsy.ward@dfps.state.tx.us.

    Trump's demand puts further pressure on the Justice Department, which later Sunday asked its watchdog to expand an existing probe of FBI actions, as the White House combats the threat posed by special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation.
