Celebrate your Home Instead CAREGiver

Show support for a Home Instead CAREGiver when their client has passed away or celebrate them when they’ve reached a milestone. CAREGivers receive a special letter informing them of your gesture. The Home Instead office is also notified that their CAREGiver was recognized.

Keep aging adults connected and engaged with their community

Mildred and Elsie love their community outings. With the help of Give65, their living community purchased a van to accommodate even more residents on these regular excursions, keeping them connected to the community and their peers. Your support of the Give65 Incentive Fund inspires people to give in support of charitable organizations like these helping older adults remain engaged with their peers and connected to their community.

General Fund

1,000 people turn 65 in Canada every day

While we can’t predict the future, we know aging adults will continue to need our help. The General Fund supports our overall function and gives us the flexibility to support the area of greatest need.
