How Valentine's Day Affects the Elderly

Posted by on 15 February 2019 | Comments

Valentine’s Day is a special day to think about the ones you love. Whether it’s your spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, or your palentine, it’s a day to remind them of how much they mean to you.

While Valentine’s Day is filled with love and emotion, it can also be a day some may dread.

As people get older, Valentine’s Day can become a day that sparks a different range of emotions.  Think of it this way, maybe your grandparents spent every Valentine’s Day together, celebrating their love for each other. However, last year, grandpa passed away, and this is grandmas first Valentine’s day in 50 years without him. 

Even though Valentine’s Day is supposed to be filled with love and spent with your special someone, make sure you reach out to your family members who may be alone, and may not know how to feel about it. Let them know how much you love them, and how important they are to you!
