Senior Wishes is seeking wish applicants

‚ÄčSenior Wishes, a WNY non-profit founded by the United Church Home Society, strives to fulfill wishes that may have been set aside by older adults.  As vaccinations increase and our communities safely re-open, Senior Wishes is looking forward to re-engaging with qualifying seniors.

A wish can be any meaningful experience the recipient deeply desires.  Past wishes have included visiting museums, celebrations for milestone birthdays, and lessons or supplies to revisit an abandoned hobby.  Sometimes, a senior just needs a small household item to bring them some cheer.

According to Wendy Miller Backman, Executive Director, “Senior Wishes was created to foster respect and appreciation by providing seniors with a life enriching experience to be remembered.  These are people who have spent their lives serving our country, caring for others, volunteering in the community and raising their families.   We want them to know they are not forgotten.”  

Qualifying seniors may submit an application which is reviewed bi-monthly by a volunteer wish granting committee.  After approval, a Senior Wishes representative will work together with the senior to plan the details of their wish.  Community members are encouraged to reach out to deserving seniors, talk to them about their needs/dreams, and help them fill out the paperwork.  

Wish recipients must be 65+ and a resident of Western New York with an annual income under $38,000 for a household of one or under $44,000 for a household of two.  Permanent residents of care facilities are exempt from the income qualification.  

Vacations, medical items, furniture, household repairs, bill payments and travel outside of the continental U.S. are excluded.  

Full details can be found at www.SeniorWishes.org or by calling Wendy at 716-508-2121.
