Do Something for Valentine’s Day

Love Letter to a senior

Love Letter to a senior

Did you know depression and isolation affect more than 6.5 million Americans ages 65 and older?  According to AARP, “an estimated 6 percent of people ages 65 and older in a given year, or approximately 2 million individuals in this age group, have a diagnosable depressive illness.”

We joined the Love Letters movement with AARP and DoSomething.org to write Valentine’s for Meals on Wheels to deliver to seniors at risk for depression.  Thank you to Massage Luxe and the Board Members of Girls on the Road South Hampton Roads for helping with this effort!  We know how important a card can be when filled with encouragement!
