International Day of Older Persons

Tuesday 01 October 2013

On December 14, 1990 the United Nations declared October 1 as the International Day of Older Persons.

The holiday is celebrated by raising awareness about issues affecting the elderly, such as healthcare, long-term care and elder abuse. It is also a day to appreciate the contributions that older people make to society.
