We all know the saying, “If you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all.” This week, live by that saying and speak up to a senior! Remember, kindness is infectious and makes an impact we often don't see. If you want a bit more of a challenge, give a compliment to one senior you know and one you don’t to spread a little extra love.

Here are few kind words you can tell them:

  1. Why they mean the most to you
  2. Why they make you smile
  3. What you love about them
  4. Or, all of the above!
