Cerith Gardiner - published on 01/12/21

The elderly proved to be some of the most resilient, inspiring and determined people last year.

One thing to come out of 2020 is a general realization of how impressive the older members of our population truly are. They’ve not only had to cope with being the most vulnerable members of society during the pandemic, they’ve had to suffer a great deal of loneliness and isolation.

However, despite these difficulties, the attitude, humor and behavior of many seniors have been a true inspiration, and it would do us all well to emulate their courage, positivity, and dedication in the year to come. To meet a few of these remarkable elderly ladies and gentlemen, click on the slideshow:
