Seniors Share Insight on Living and Loving

Valentine Senior VoicesWe came across an article by Nico Pitney of the Huffington Post and thought it couldn’t be a more fitting piece to share in this season of love. So many good reminders and teachable tips of how to make the most of our relationships and to be mindful in the moments we get with those we care about. “#7 Take time to craft the story of your life.” in this article lends well for how our work with seniors in our communities can make a difference. Here’s a challenge to you: this Valentine’s Day week take some time to inquire and gain a glimpse of the love stories and lives of seniors in your life. Everyone has a voice and a story to share, simply ask the questions and take the time to listen – it could make all the difference.
