Caring for Our Community

Caring for Our Community as a FamilyAker Kasten Memory Walk 2012 Team

Because The Aker Kasten Home Health Care Agency is built on the foundation of family – Dr. Alan B. Aker, his wife, Dr. Ann Kasten Aker, Dr. John B. Aker, and his wife, Rose Aker – we know the importance of reaching out to those around us. As members of the Palm Beach County community, our family wants to touch the lives of other families. So, our Aker Kasten family is involved in a number of ways to help make our community a better place, as you will see below.

Health Fairs

We often partner with area churches, synagogues, community centers, and condominium associations to offer free health fairs. Often partnering with The Aker Kasten Eye Center, we provide FREE glaucoma and cataract screenings, general health surveys, provide nutritional and home safety information and more. Call us to schedule one at your organization.

Civic Involvement

Members of our staff truly want to help others in our community. At present, several of our dedicated workers are exploring membership in reputable charitable organizations. Our agency enjoyed the honor of being a sponsor and sending a Memory Walk 2013team of participants for the annual ‘Keep Memories Alive’ fundraiser walk benefiting the Louis and Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center.

 

 

Humanitarian Relief

Each of us affirm the responsibility we have in making a difference. Recently one of our staff members participated in the Alzheimer’s Association sponsored Memory Walk to help raise funds for research and education for Alzheimer’s Disease. This is just one example of our family going the extra mile to help others…

From time to time, we have an opportunity to make a difference in a faraway place. Dr. John Aker has been involved in humanitarian efforts for many years – particularly building and refurbishing geriatric centers in Russia, Ukraine, and Moldova – as have several members of our staff. Recently, a colleague alerted us to the continued need for personal items in Haiti after the devastating tropical storms and hurricanes. We were happy to contribute many, many pounds of goods and financial assistance to aid displaced families.
