The International Day of Older Persons is observed on October 1 each year.
Its celebrated in order to raise awareness about issues affecting the elderly, such as senescence and elder abuse. It is also a day to appreciate the contributions that older people make to society.
Every other day we get to hear about elderly abuse in tabloids, violence, burglary and lot more.
There are numerous no. of abuses that occur every day such as Physical abuse, Elder financial abuse, Sexual abuse etc.
Though they don’t deserve to experience any of aforementioned but the one i feel is most painful is abandonment of elderly and neglect of elderly which i think is in our control & just by spending time with them we can make them feel valued.
I hope & wish that the younger generation should step in & take action towards their betterment.
On that note i wish It should be “Happy” & Always be Happy International Day of the Older persons!
