October marks a number of wonderful ways in which we can support our senior community. The 1st October is International Day of Older People and the 6th October is Silver Sunday, a UK day of celebrating older people - changing the story around loneliness.
" Older people have always played a significant role in society as leaders, caretakers and custodians of tradition. Yet they are also highly vulnerable, with many falling into poverty, becoming disabled or facing discrimination. As health care improves, the population of older people is growing. Their needs are also growing, as are their contributions to the world"
Elthorne Pride would like to say thank you to those who have contributed and continue to make a difference in our community.
