”At the time of year that we celebrate love, it’s important to extend caring and friendship to the senior generation,” said Tiffany Beltz, executive director of Emeritus at Sequoia Springs. “We know that many will spend Valentine’s Day on their own. For those who have lost spouses it can be a sad occasion that contributes to feelings of loneliness. Family and friends may live far away, and perhaps physical challenges limit their ability to get out into the greater community. We hope to brighten the day for one of these seniors through festivities and friendship.”
Bringing Valentine’s Day festivities to a local senior is part of the philosophy of Emeritus at Sequoia Springs’s: assurance that seniors are living “safely somewhere.”
”What that means is we believe it is crucial for seniors to live in environments that enhance their well-being, whether they reside with us or somewhere else. That is why we would like to offer this special occasion on Valentine’s Day.”
To suggest a senior, please provide:
