At the Heart of the CareLink Mission… Supporting Older Arkansans with Caregivers like Brandon
Throughout life, many of us are always looking for new opportunities to master more skills and relish in our accomplishments. We do not consider the day will come when we can no longer care for ourselves. And when it does, there’s sometimes a question of who can help. There’s where the services CareLink provides become a resource for many Central Arkansas families. Brandon J. Ewell is a CareLink caregiver and realizes the critical support the organization provides through its diverse and meaningful programs.
Brandon is only 21 years old; he can’t remember a time when he didn’t enjoy easing the burden for family and friends. He knows it’s hard work and some days are harder than others, but the hard is met with just as much good. ” I love helping others, especially older people,” Brandon explains. “I help them do the things they no longer can, like cleaning and making a bed. I am also a friend. I listen to their stories from when they were younger and the wild things they did in their youth. It makes me feel good to put a smile on their face.”
For more than 40 years, CareLink has connected older Arkansans with resources to meet the opportunities and challenges of aging. Learn more about services and support programs – CareLink specialists are available to visit with you.
