Pacifica Seniors Give Back

Dec 19, 2023 3:31:12 PM / by Pacifica Senior Living posted in Community Events

0 Comments


At Pacifica Senior Living, we love giving back to our local communities. From coast to coast, our Senior Living communities are involved with charity organizations and fundraising on both a national and neighborhood level.

Whether it is participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, donating to local animal shelters, collecting Toys for Tots during the holidays, or raising funds for local charities, our communities love getting involved and giving back.

Giving back not only changes the lives of those we give to, but it can also be powerful for our residents. Volunteering can create a sense of purpose, be linked to higher self-esteem, and encourage social connections and community. Volunteering time, donating, and raising both awareness and funds can help both sides, improving emotional and mental wellbeing, especially in seniors or retired individuals looking to fill their days with meaning.

As a company, Pacifica Senior Living partners with associations and charities where our team members and residents can give back in meaningful ways. Our biggest partnership is with the Alzheimer’s Association. We work with them to raise money and awareness throughout the year. One of our biggest events is participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s where staff, residents and loved ones come together to raise money and walk in support of those living with dementia.
