The program was great! It came at a time when I was at my all-time lowest. The combination of the sessions with your counselors and the service to help my aunt was a tremendous help. They gave me what I needed at the right time. Words cannot explain how valuable United HomeCare was to me.

United HomeCare honors Claude Pepper Award recipients and celebrates 44 years of serving South Florida's elderly community

United HomeCare's Annual Dinner and Claude Pepper Awards will be held Thursday, May 17, 2018 at Jungle Island.  This year, United HomeCare® is celebrating 44 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 24 years.
