BLOG: Grandparents' Day and UN International Day of Older Persons

This weekend sees focus placed firmly on the elder generations as Saturday 1st October is the United Nations International Day of Older Persons and Sunday 2nd October is Grandparents' Day. The former takes a stand against ageism by "drawing attention to and challenging negative stereotypes and misconceptions about older persons and aging" while the latter celebrates the important family role that Grandparents play in all of our lives (including our dogs!!!) Lisa Suswain pays tribute to the important role Grandparents and older people play in Wagging Tails.

Many of our very best Dog Carers are Grandparents, both individuals and couples, many in retirement. They are experienced dog owners who still want the companionship of dogs but without the commitments that come with dog ownership.

"I've been a Carer for Wagging Tails for two and a half years and its absolutely wonderful. You get to take dogs out and socialise with other people. At 68 that's really a good thing"
