VALDOSTA, Ga. – Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and many of us are gearing up to make our special someone feel even more special, however, for some this day may not be as loved-filled. In a recent study done by AARP, adults that are not in a romantic relationship, especially those 50 years and older, are more likely to feel alone during Valentine’s Day.
PruittHealth is looking for help to bring joy to their patients this Valentine’s Day. The family-owned organization is asking for help from the community to send cards and letters to their residents. With this simple act of kindness we, as a community, can ensure that no older adult feels forgotten about.
“At PruittHealth, we treat everyone like a part of our family. On Valentine’s Day – and every day – we strive to make sure our patients feel loved and a part of a community. Unfortunately, for some of our residents, their loved ones have passed on or aren’t always able to visit. This is why we’re asking for the community’s help in making sure all our residents feel the love this Valentine’s Day,” said Neil L. Pruitt, Jr., Chairman and CEO of PruittHealth.
