Carson Cares Advocacy
Carson Cares Advocacy is a grassroots organization that is dedicated to the emotional health and well-being of seniors. Currently we are self funded and rely heavily on donations to provide care packages to seniors. Your support is needed and greatly appreciated.
Carson Cares Advocacy is dedicated to assisting seniors with the emotional support and guidance necessary to navigate their golden years with grace. This organization is designed to help enhance the quality of life and provide the necessary support for older adults. As members of our program, our seniors receive not only the medical, financial, or legal assistance needed, but we also focus on giving the individual attention they need and desire on a social and emotional level.
The primary mission of our organization is to provide the highest level of senior emotional support as it relates to the individual’s specific needs. Our mission can only be accomplished through personal dedication and the empathy to understand the senior’s choices and desires. Displays of love such as fresh flowers or plants, snacks, lotions, slippers, position affirmations and other personal items are included in the personalized care we provide. Scheduled visits can last from 15 to 30 minutes depending on needs and wants with the goal being making sure that their emotional needs, well being and happiness are a priority.
Carson Cares Advocacy was born out of love and experience. Henry Carson Thomas was a senior whose daughter stepped in to advocate for him as he attempted to navigate the healthcare system alone. For thirteen years, she attended every doctor's appointment equipped with an in-depth knowledge of his medical history and advance directives. Quite often his daughter would identify or anticipate unmet medical, financial, or legal needs and make recommendations for how to meet them. Her takeaway, as she said her final goodbye to her father, was that this very important need wasn’t unique to Henry; the love and support she provided her dad should be available to all.
