One of the recent community outreach programs involved registering participants at the Medical Screening Bus for the Mission Camp at the Cleveland County Fair, which took place in Shelby, NC. This was not just a way to help seniors medically, but also a way to show the importance of regular medical screening.
Around the holidays, the Helping Hands team participated in numerous themed tree decorations within senior living communities in the Shelby area. It is just one more example of a way to bring together people for a positive experience.
Much of this community involvement is the brainchild of Helping Hands owner Ruth Huffstetler. Her efforts have been able to create more than just a business, but a proud pillar of the community.
She also makes media appearances and recently appeared as a guest on a local radio show discussing Home Health vs Home Care and why caregivers are so prone to failing health. That served as one more chance for Ruth to share some of her valuable insight on the topic of elderly care.
Ruth was also proud to usher in Helping Hands’ 40th anniversary last year. That would not have been achievable without being so involved in the community. That involvement also includes charity events as Helping Hands also donated its time as part of the past American Legion World Series. Those efforts also helped contribute to an overall team effort for charity within the city of Shelby, NC.
Home care is all about people and what better way to reach people than by staying involved in the community. Ruth and the Helping Hands team provides more than just referrals for elderly caregivers, but professionals who truly enjoy helping other people. That is the true definition of community, one that Helping Hands lives and breathes every day.
