SYNERGY HomeCare of Katy, Texas will be bringing two generations together as they celebrate Father's Day in a special way -launching the first ever Adopt-A-Pop program.
The pilot program will take place at 2 pm on Friday, June 19th at the Legend Oaks Rehabilitation Center in Katy. SYNERGY HomeCare will match children with an adopted a pop (grandfather) for the day. The kids will fill out custom designed adoption certificates with their adopted pops to commemorate the special occasion.
The children and their adopted pops will also spend time getting to know each other during an ice cream social. One lucky “pop” will also win a Father’s Day gift basket.
"Isolation and loneliness are widespread among our elders”, says Hayley Sheeks, co-owner of SYNERGY HomeCare of Katy. "Many older parents don’t have family members who live close enough to visit - if they have any family at all. We are excited to take part in this pilot program to ensure the elder fathers in our community are not forgotten.”
