FORT WORTH, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the last two years have made a profound impact on people and communities throughout the globe, Comfort Keepers®, a market-leading provider of uplifting home care for seniors and adults who need assistance, is focusing its mission on spreading joy and purpose to individuals who need it the most. Comfort Keepers is commemorating its fourth annual National Day of Joy on Wednesday, June 29, 2022, as a way to emphasize the importance of individuals finding joy, no matter their age, to boost their overall physical, mental and emotional health. This year’s theme is “Reclaim the Joy” to help people celebrate all of the simple things and activities that bring them joy and happiness that they may have missed during the pandemic.
According to last year’s Comfort Keepers survey, 80% of Americans believe the world needs more joy.¹ The same survey found that due to the pandemic, people missed out on going to dinner (78%), seeing family and friends (76%), travel (71%) and other activities.² As a brand whose strives to never focus on loss, but all we can gain, Comfort Keepers is empowering their local offices, caregivers, seniors and communities to find ways to take back the moments of joy they missed the most.
To celebrate, our office, Comfort Keepers of Fort Worth, will be hosting an event for families, caregivers, community partners, and close contacts at the Main Event. It will take place on June 29, 2022, from 12pm-3pm in the afternoon. If you are interested in participating, give the office a call at (817)-560-8085. Or, to celebrate, the Comfort Keepers of Fort Worth will be bowling, playing games, and enjoying sliders & wings. We’ll also be visiting clients and delivering balloons.
“In our community, we have always celebrated the value and importance of connecting with family and friends, savoring the present, enjoying simple pleasures, and not taking life for granted,” said Scott Van Duinen, owner. “Our amazing group of caregivers bring moments of joy to so many seniors every day of the year – even during the most challenging of times. We thank them for all of their dedication and support and encourage our community to do their part in reclaiming joy for themselves, friends and loved ones. It’s never too late to take back the joy we may have missed and inspire others to do the same.”
The company’s caregivers, also known as “Comfort Keepers,” deliver joy, purpose and uplifting support to seniors on this day – and every day, on every shift. For more than 20 years, Comfort Keepers has made it their mission to not only help today’s seniors thrive and find joy and purpose every day, but also to invest, inspire and nurture the caregivers who care for them. According to another recent Comfort Keepers survey of nearly 1,000 Comfort Keepers caregivers, respondents reported being satisfied with the personal fulfillment gained in their job (90%) and the flexibility of being an in-home care caregiver (93%).₃
