Senior Angels

Senior Angels is the sister program of Chemo Angels. Many older people today suffer from loneliness, especially those who are home-bound, or confined to a nursing home or convalescent hospital. Senior Angels matches senior citizens with a Senior Angel whose desire it is to brighten the seniors life and let them know that they are remembered and cared about.

To submit an application for a Senior

 

If you or someone you know is a senior, age 65 or older, in need of a little attention, you have come to the right place. Please, carefully read and accept the following terms and conditions, and then fill out the application. Remember, the more we know about the applicant, the better we can help. If accepted, the senior will be "adopted" by a Senior Angel who, through cards, cheerful notes, and occasional small gifts, will send encouragement through the mail weekly. Money is never solicited from our recipients. This is strictly a labor of love. 

 

All seniors must accept our General Terms & Conditions (see below) in order to participate in the Senior Angels program. Please do not sign someone up without their complete knowledge and consent. Once you have read the Terms and Conditions, please click on the applicable button below. Thank you!

Feedback about Senior Angels

 

 

"I recently saw an article in People Magazine about ChemoAngels.  I went to the website and after reading about it saw a link to SeniorAngels.  I signed my 87 year old Mother up.  I can’t tell you how much my Mother appreciates hearing from her Angel!  She lives with my younger sister and is pretty much home bound, due to a magnitude of health problems.  Shortly after I signed her up she got a card from her angel.  Then last week another card and a letter came. Today she asked if the mail had come and her sitter said “why do you ask?"  Mother replied…”well, I thought I might hear something from my Angel”.  How sweet is that!!  My sister called tonight to thank me for signing Mother up.  It’s amazing how something as simple as a card can mean so much.  I want to thank your organization and my Mom’s Angel for putting a little ray of sunshine in my Mom’s eyes!!  Anna"

 

 

 

"Greetings! I first read about ChemoAngels in “People” magazine (July 2004).   I  made the attempt to become an “Angel”, and was absolutely thrilled when I was accepted into the program in  the Summer of 2005.   I was blessed with the opportunity be a  “Card Angel” for a lovely man for a few months and am now a “Senior Angel”  for two dear women. My father has also been blessed by this organization by “Special Assignment Angels” and his own dear “Chemo Angel” and “Card Angel.” When my sweet Mom, Lena, passed away suddenly (and unexpectedly) on January 25, 2006, I was devastated.  My Mom and I were VERY close. The condolence cards and notes I have received from the “Angels” have touched my heart and soul.  I will be forever grateful for the compassionate “Angels” who have been so kind to me (and my father) during these sad days.  Thank you, Angels!   May God richly bless each and every one of you!

Sincerely, Deborah"
