International Day of the Older Person – 1 October 2015

A message from the NZNO Gerontology Nurses Section on International day of the older person.
“What a great year to remember older people with celebrations for 100 years since Gallipoli and 70 years since the Second World War. While there are not many war veterans left now we need to remember they fought for our freedom, and made the country what it is today.
Today and in the future we face an increasing number of older people within our society. We have a responsibility to ensure they are well looked after and receive excellent care and support, whether in their homes or in residential care.”
