Senior Citizens Day


Happy National Senior Citizens Day! We thank and salute you for your sacrifice, love, support, and encouragement, especially to the younger generation. We look to you for sense of purpose and guidance.

Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim August 21st, 1988, as National Senior Citizens Day. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. — Ronald Reagan

Senior citizens desire a meaningful quality of life and they deserve to be celebrated with a dignified life. Many continue to play an important role in society including embarking on second careers such as volunteering in various programs locally and worldwide. Whether it’s knitting hats for a local crisis nursery or playing piano during happy hour, giving back in some small way feeds the soul.

Seniors have always been the driving force of motivation, dedication, and determination to our younger generation. With the wealth of knowledge and life experience, they continue to inspire and encourage the younger generation to strive for success, emphasize manners and respect, and so much more – all in the name of a better tomorrow.

In observance of our tagline, The Art of Living With Purpose, Passion & Joy, Tuscan Gardens dares to ask, “What is living as a senior and what does that mean?”

At Tuscan Gardens®, we strongly believe that every senior regardless of background has the right to live well. Tuscan Gardens provides the landscape for seniors to enjoy the fruits harvested from a life well lived. It was created as a continuum of care where seniors can live and thrive with purpose, passion and joy, in whatever stage of life and living situation they find themselves – independent living, assisted living or memory care. The result is an invigorating life of new ideas and experiences with the wisdom, time and curiosity to enjoy them all.

The closest thing to being cared for is to care for someone else.” — Carson McCullers
