Studies show that approximately 20 percent of nursing home residents have major depression (about 350,000 people in the U.S.), and an additional 30 percent have significant depressive symptoms.

Depression among nursing home residents is largely caused by the lack of social interacting and environmental isolation. Nursing home residents, like all other people, need this interaction to maintain a healthy life style.

Out of the residents who got this social interaction, more than half had a saw a complete reversal of their depression. Anticipation of the times spent during these social interactions is also a factor in fighting against depression.

This year on September 7, come and join us to make a difference in the the lives of nursing home residents.

Spend one hour on the Saturday before Grandparents day visiting and celebrating local nursing home residents!
