Today's Talk: senior volunteer nomination

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Vermont residents are encouraged to nominate outstanding senior volunteers for the search for Vermont's outstanding senior volunteer. The Salute to Senior Service program, sponsored by Home Instead, Inc., the franchiser of the Home Instead Senior Care network, honors the contributions of adults 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service to their favorite causes. Nominations for outstanding senior volunteers will be accepted between Feb. 1 and March 31, 2013.  Patrice Thabault of the Home Instead Senior Care told us about the national honor. Watch the video for more.

Home Instead, Inc. will donate $500 to each of the state winners' favorite nonprofit organizations and their stories will be posted on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame. In addition, $5,000 will be donated to the national winner's nonprofit charity of choice.

Online voting will take place from April 15 to April 30, 2013. From those state winners, a panel of senior care experts will pick the national Salute to Senior Service honoree.
