Sagora Grants Holiday Wishes

Dec 26 2013

Senior Living company shows true christmas spirit



Fort Worth, TX – Fort Worth based Sagora Senior Living decided to put on a figurative Santa suit and pass out “gifts” to a few good boys and girls by granting holiday “wishes” to a few of their lucky residents at five different communities.

Applying the old adage that giving is better than receiving, Sagora Senior Living held a holiday wish contest during the month of December across all of their communities, ranging from Tomball, TX to Port St. Lucie, FL. Five lucky winners were granted their wish, and some even wished to help others. Take James from their Heritage Tomball community, for example. James’s wish was to grant the wish of an ill child, so with Sagora’s help, some video games, an iPad and many other toys were sent to a young boy in Georgia dealing with a rare bone disease, in hopes that his holiday will be spent like every other child’s…being a kid and having fun.

Harriet from Sagora’s Adante community in San Antonio wrote a poem about having her husband back from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s and while Sagora unfortunately can’t grant that wish, Harriet was gifted a discounted month of rent, as well as being Sagora’s Alzheimer representative in the 2014 year.

With the holidays surrounding Alan, a resident at Sagora’s Brennity at Fairhope community in Fairhope, AL, his wish was something we can all appreciate; enjoying the taste of food again. Due to medical bills, Alan hasn’t been able to purchase a new pair of dentures, but that changed with Alan becoming a winner of Sagora’s Holiday wish program and he is ready to take a bite out of life!

Edith from Sagora’s Rio Terra community in New Braunfes is a “home is where the heart is” kind of lady, so when she submitted her wish, it was as simple as just going back to her childhood neighborhood with some friends. Edith got her wish granted, and a bit upgraded, as she’ll be going to Austin in style in a stretch limo!

A man may be unable to play the game he loves as he ages, but his love for the game never ceases. Such is the case with Sagora’s Brennity at Vero Beach in Florida resident Jack. Jack wanted to hear the sound of a cracking baseball bat hitting home runs and he’ll get to experience that with a few friends when the New York Mets coming to Port St. Lucie for spring training! It’s a good bet that he enjoys some peanuts and Cracker Jacks!

Ruth Stapleton once said, “Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it the most”. In a season where it can be easy to be self and bottom-line focused, Sagora opted to spread Christmas cheer. There’s no doubt Santa Claus is coming to town, and this year, he has a friend in Sagora coming with him.
