National Seniors Day

October 1st is National Seniors Day in Canada. This day is meant to celebrate the life-long contributions our seniors make and will continue to make across Canada.

Seniors provide us with wisdom and guidance and we cannot thank them enough for their invaluable contributions to not only our country but our everyday lives. They provide us with real life stories that the younger generations can only imagine, and each has a story worth listening to. Between our two campuses Elim Village is proud to be home to over 700 senior residents, each with a unique and different story worth sharing.

There are plenty of ways to show appreciation to our seniors, not just today but everyday.  Something as simple as saying “thank-you” or holding a door open goes a long way. Try asking a senior you know about their history and their life growing up, what you hear might surprise you!
