You’re somewhere along life’s path with goals for the future. You might want to raise a family, have a lasting marriage, start a business, or conquer mental health challenges. Whatever it is, some people have been there before. Seniors have done it all and looking back, there are things they would do differently.
We would be foolish to travel through our life without making older adults a part of it.
Experiences are what make us who we are. Imagine the impact someone with a lifetime of experiences has on a community. You grow faster when you are sharing experiences with others. This is why seeking out older adults helps you as you travel life’s (sometimes rocky) paths.
Build Your Community Up by Honoring Senior Citizens
Older adults are the people who came before you. They built up the community you live in. They are leaders and innovators. Lucky for you, you can now build up your community without starting from scratch.
You can thank the senior citizens of your community for that.
These strong people may be left to struggle alone as they get older. Especially during COVID, older adults are experiencing significant isolation and loneliness. They are grieving the loss of friends, and health challenges. Often while being away from their loved ones.
The month of May is Older Americans Month and it’s a good time to reflect on how you honor the older adults in your life. You can make a huge difference in someone’s life.
