“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.
