Is a Big Deal

50% Nursing Home Residents

Studies show that approximately 20 percent of nursing home residents have major depression. 30 percent have significant depressive symptoms.

Environmental Isolation

Nursing home residents are often depressed because of isolation. Grandparents often have a lack of social interaction regardless of where they live. Nursing home residents need interaction to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Reversal of Depression

More than half of residents who had more social interaction reversed their depression. Nursing home residents also have less depression from the anticipation of a visit.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to visit, cherish, and celebrate the elderly in our community. Our focus is on nursing home and assisted living facilities. We recognize and honor the life and value of the elderly in our society. We provide them with love and affection with no strings attached.

Get Involved

Saturday, Sept 14, 2024

On the second Saturday of September, our volunteers go into teams to bring gifts for seniors. We collect gifts for our seniors throughout the year. National Grandparents Day is celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day.

Like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, we also have a whole day dedicated to our grandparents. Grandparents and children have a special connection that is proven to make grandparents live longer. It also makes children more emotionally resilient. Grandparents Day is an opportunity to treasure that connection.

Give through PayPal

You can donate with your PayPal account or with a credit card. You can even choose an option to make it a monthly donation.

Get Involved

There are many opportunities to volunteer leading up to and including the big day!

Amazon Wish List

Donate items to be included in the Treasure Boxes. These items range from hygiene and stationery to games and gifts that the residents enjoy. You can find the Adopt A Grandparent Day Amazon Wish List. Items you purchase from the Amazon Wish List are delivered directly to our office.
