Each year on August 21, there are various events and activities held across the United States in recognition of National Senior Citizens Day. Carolina SeniorCare will recognize National Senior Citizen's Day at 10:30am on August 21. Join us!
This day was created as a day to support, honor and show appreciation to our seniors and to recognize their achievements. Their valuable contributions to our communities create better places to live.
Their valuable contributions to our communities create better places to live. Take time today to spend with seniors you know, and listen to their stories of wisdom and experience, gain from their hard-earned knowledge.
By the time you’re eighty years old you’ve learned everything. You only have to remember it.” George Burns
For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute. We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem by making sure that our communities are good places in which to mature and grow older — places in which older people can participate to the fullest and can find the encouragement, acceptance, assistance, and services they need to continue to lead lives of independence and dignity. ~ President Ronald Reagan – August 19, 1988 Proclamation 5847
