Better Life Homecare, Inc. invites the community to bring some comfort and holiday cheer to over 500

local seniors through its 5th Annual Holiday Angels Gift Drive for the clients of The Council on Aging of

St. Lucie, Inc.

“Research suggests that feelings of loneliness can have a real effect on both mental and physical

health,” said Antoinette Rolle, Administrator of Better Life Homecare, and Trekina Smith, Nutrition

Program Manager for the Council on Aging of St. Lucie. “The holidays are a prime time for people to

feel lonely and that may be especially true for seniors who can’t travel or have lost their support


Holiday Angels Gift Drive provides a thoughtful gift that seniors might not otherwise receive. “More

importantly,” Mrs. Smith said, “the Meals on Wheels drivers deliver those gifts with a warm friendly

face and kind words to remind them that their community has not forgotten them.”

St. Lucie County’s Better Life Homecare is partnering with local businesses, non-profits, clubs and

government agencies, including Butterfield’s Pharmacy, City of Port St. Lucie, Wellmed Medical

Management, Seacoast Bank, Adult and Geriatric Solutions and The Estate, Trust & Elder Law Firm,

and many more community members to ensure that all clients of COASL receive a gift.

Place an appropriate new unwrapped gift in Holiday Angels donation boxes at participating locations

through December 5th. Tax-deductible donations to purchase gifts or grocery gift cards can be made

to the Council on Aging of St. Lucie, Inc.
