According to Pew Research Center, 27% of adults age 60 years or older live alone. These older adults usually do not receive much attention or supervision from their families or loved ones for a multitude of reasons.
Senior citizens are some of the most vulnerable individuals in our communities, often times relying on others to take care of them, accommodate them, and help them in their daily life. On August 21st, 2020 it is National Senior Citizens Day. This day is dedicated to honoring the lives and contributions the older generation has provided their communities, families, and loved ones.
Below are some ways you can show your appreciation and care for the elderly not only today but every day!
