SEATTLE, Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A Place for Mom, Inc. (APFM), North America's largest senior living referral service, announced the availability of its "Wall of Honor," a new facet of its online community that provides users with a place to highlight U.S. veterans and pay tribute to the men and women who have played a critical role in our nation's history.
"A Place for Mom has helped more than 77,000 veterans find the right senior living community. The 'Wall of Honor' is an additional way for us to help seniors and their loved ones tell the important stories of service to our country in the wake of Veteran's Day, and as we give thanks this holiday season," said Sean Kell, CEO of A Place for Mom. "As a company whose brand focuses on uplifting the lives of seniors, we believe this online tribute offers families a way to pay homage and gratitude to aging veterans who often have rich histories to share."
The "Wall of Honor" offers an opportunity for the family and friends of veterans to celebrate a loved one that has served in the U.S. military by sharing a treasured photo along with military and life highlights, as well as personal messages. APFM has also encouraged its network of partners to celebrate the veterans in their communities through storytelling in this manner by participating.
"As a company with a long history of honoring and recognizing the veterans that reside in our communities, we salute A Place for Mom for providing such a visually compelling way for families to share their pride for loved ones who have served their country," said Kai Hsiao, president and CEO of Holiday Retirement, a nationwide network of senior living communities.
