Older People’s Day

old peoples day

Firstly I just can’t believe that it is October already – oh my goodness where does the time go!  Did you know that today, Monday 1st October, is Older People’s Day?  Each year we celebrate the contribution that our older citizens make to the world and quite rightly so.  People, no matter their age, have many years of experience (both life and work) that we can all learn from so it seems only fitting to celebrate and enjoy what our older generation can bring to our discussions today and into the future.

I personally feel that it is important that we recognise and support our senior citizens within our society – with life comes experience, with experience comes knowledge and with knowledge comes wisdom so wouldn’t it be great today to start a conversation with an older person you know ….. we can learn and share so much together.  Let’s give it a go!
