Grandparents Day is held on the 30th of October 2022. It's a unique day to honour grandparents, grand-friends, family members, and other people who typically play the role of grandparents in their families or communities. It's a lovely moment to thank the family's elder members for everything they do.
On Grandparents Day, we have the opportunity to express how much we value our elderly family members. Whether we accomplish that by planning or participating in a celebration or simply having a cup of tea and a chat, now is the time to pause and express gratitude for the positive impacts these amazing family members have on our lives, families, and communities.
