Help Local Home Health Care Referral Service Provide Blankets to Osceola, Orange and Seminole County Seniors

Orlando, Fla. – Oct. 12, 2015 – For Central Florida seniors who continue to live in the comfort of their own homes or who have moved into nursing facilities and hospitals, even Florida winters bring new challenges and put our elderly at increased risk. Longwood-based Granny NANNIES, a home health care referral service, is hosting a blanket drive for Osceola, Orange and Seminole counties from now through December 4, 2015. This year’s goal is set at 150 lap blankets, throws and quilts, which will be dispersed to Hospice of the Comforter and Florida Living Nursing Center to provide seniors with added comfort and warmth.

Granny NANNIES is asking Central Florida’s citizens, organizations, businesses and community groups to help with this worthwhile cause. Both homemade and store-bought blankets are being accepted at Granny NANNIES headquarters: 1912 Boothe Circle, Suite 300, Longwood, FL 32750. There is a donation box in the lobby that is open during office hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

“We want our seniors to know that they have the love and support of our community,” said Granny NANNIES CEO Robert Hodgson. “Thank you to everyone who is donating and helping spread the word about our blanket drive. Caring for those who once cared for us is the highest honor and we take pride in providing services that keep them in good health and spirits.”

About Granny NANNIES

Granny NANNIES was founded in 1990 by Rob and Kirsten Hodgson in Central Florida as the result of a very personal, family situation – the need to find quality, trustworthy, reliable and affordable senior home care for Rob’s aging grandmother, Esther Dowding, in her own Winter Park home. Since our beginnings in 1990, Granny NANNIES’ commitment to excellence remains true today. A strong dedication remains to ensure that our clients are consistently treated with the highest level of respect and dignity and are matched with the right private duty caregiver to provide care services in the home, hospital, assisted living facility or nursing home.
