This Grandparents Day (Sunday), it is important that we take a minute to celebrate our aging loved ones and reflect on all the ways we can promote caring across generations.
All around the country, including right here in Seattle, groups are organizing storytelling activities and service projects that honor intergenerational relationships, highlight aging with dignity and independence and demonstrating our country’s growing need to support long-term care and caregivers.
Every eight seconds, another person turns 65 in our country. There has never been a better time to talk about care.
