Get ready to celebrate the International day of Older Persons on 1 October 2021.
It’s the perfect opportunity to show the older generation that they are appreciated … and to spend some precious time together (should conditions allow) to combat the loneliness experienced by many older people.
Be sure to take time to listen – grandparents have wonderful tales to tell about bygone days … and snippets of information about long gone family members … that help create a richly woven identity of where we come from. We can also learn from the resilience of our elders – and how they have navigated life with all its ups and downs. And we pray that by October we will have moved past the third wave, and be able to reunite with our elders.
