The Baulkham Hills community are being encouraged to show their appreciation for senior family members this Grandparents Day with a simple phone call, a visit or sending a letter or a card.
Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott said Grandparents Day on Sunday, 25 October is the perfect opportunity to say thanks to the people who do so much for our community.
“Grandparents are often the glue holding their families and communities together,” Mr Elliott said.
“They are carers, volunteers and active members of society who make Baulkham Hills a better place to live.”
People in Baulkham Hills are encouraged to keep connected with the seniors in their life and share their special Grandparents Day celebrations on social media.
Grandparents Day recognises the contribution of older people, including grandparents, to their families and communities.
While many traditional Grandparents Day activities are not taking place this year due to the pandemic, Acting Minister for Seniors Geoff Lee is passionate about not letting the day pass unnoticed.
“This has been a particularly challenging year for seniors with many unable to see loved ones due to COVID-19 restrictions,” Mr Lee said.
“It is especially important to show older relatives care and appreciation this Grandparents Day.
“There are plenty of ways to connect with our seniors, whether it’s a phone call, a visit, online chat or sending a good old-fashioned letter or card to acknowledge all the amazing things they have done.”
