Celebrating our Seniors!
Seniors’ Week 2020 will, in some ways, be different this year from any other. This year while we celebrate apart - each one of our seniors - client and volunteer hold a special place in our hearts!
In October 2002, a proclamation was declared that the first week of every June shall be known as “Seniors’ Week.”
Seniors’ Week 2020 will, in some ways, be different this year from any other. Although COVID-19 will change the way we celebrate this year, it won’t break the spirit of Seniors’ Week. That spirit is as strong as ever, and it is about recognizing and celebrating all that seniors have contributed to making our families, and community of Lake Country so much stronger.
This year - more than most is a time to celebrate seniors and their many contributions – providing an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the integral part seniors play in Lake Country!
For LCHPS staff, Seniors Week is one of our most favourite time of the year!
Pre COVID-19, the hugs and words of encouragement from our senior clients and volunteers were usually delivered at the precise time - just when tanks are running low, and staff are stretched.
While we appreciate each and every one of our volunteers - many of them are senior members of our community. Who, when asked to support our work - usually say without hesitation, “how can I help?”
This year - more than most is a time to celebrate seniors and their many contributions – providing an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the integral part seniors play in Lake Country and across British Columbia.
While we can’t gather with so many of our loved senior family members and friends. In many small ways, you could take the time to acknowledge the impact they have made on your life… Offer to pick up groceries, run errands, drop by a senior’s home and cut the grass, pick up your phone and make a call. It all matters!
Most importantly, check in with the seniors, you know.
