It is during times of need, during stressful situations, the challenge of taking care of the elderly that one can only hope that those who are designated to offer and respond to your needs "are there and fulfill their other part of the challenge" which in this case was United HomeCare, and it was performed.

United HomeCare honors Claude Pepper Award recipients and celebrates 43 years of serving South Florida's elderly community

United HomeCare’s Annual Dinner and Claude Pepper Awards will be held Thursday, May 11, 2017 at Jungle Island.  This year, United HomeCare® is celebrating 43 years of improving the lives of tens of thousands of elderly and disabled adults in Miami-Dade County. United HomeCare’s fundamental mission to provide our clients with the dignity, independence and compassionate care they deserve remains as valid today as when the agency was created.

The signature event honors individuals and organizations exemplifying the spirit and ideals of the prestigious awards’ namesake, The Honorable Claude Pepper.  Senator Pepper once said, “Life is like riding a bicycle: you don’t fall off unless you stop pedaling.”  United HomeCare continues its commitment to our community by championing causes that deliver proven quality care, and by carrying on Claude Pepper’s legacy at what has become a signature gathering of South Florida’s most dedicated elder care and disabled advocates over the past 23 years.

Join us as we proudly recognize the 2017 award recipients for their achievements and notable work on behalf of the community.
