As a community leader and advocate, the Alliance on Aging provides services and resources that address the challenges and opportunities of aging.
Spring is in the air and Alliance on Aging is kicking off this month with the “I Remember Mama” event on Mother’s Day weekend.
I REMEMBER MAMA (May 7 – 8)
Did you know that hundreds of elderly women living in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities throughout Monterey County have little to no communications with anyone from outside the facilities? Our goal is to change that. We want to let these special “mamas” know that they are not forgotten with the “I Remember Mama” campaign.
Each year, on Mother’s Day weekend, our volunteers visit the senior care facilities in the county to hand deliver a beautiful flowering plant to a senior woman and wish them a Happy Mother’s Day. Over 1,200 flowering plants were delivered last year.

I REMEMBER PAPA (June 10)
New this year, we will be honoring the gentlemen living in senior facilities with “I Remember Papa”. As with MAMA, our volunteers will visit each of the senior care facilities, but this time, it will be on Father’s Day weekend. Instead of flowers, these “papas” will receive a baseball cap, a card and a hug from our volunteers.
Both Mama and Papa events support the Ombudsman Program. The Ombudsmen advocate for the best care possible for seniors living in nursing homes and residential care facilities throughout Monterey County.
