DR. SAMUEL LUPIN is the winner of the 2015 Purpose Prize for Intergenerational Engagement sponsored by the Eisner Foundation. He founded a program called Housecalls for the Homebound in New York City at a time in his life when most physicians would be planning retirement. However, it was his way to continue his practice while caring for a daughter with leukemia. He notes on the Encore.org website that visiting homebound older adults is a way of honoring his daughter Lois’ memory. Family is key in Housecalls for the Homebound in another way: his son-in-law and grandson help run the business which has served over 4,000 patients who would otherwise be in hospitals or other facilities.
