On Friday, August 21, America will celebrate our National Senior Citizen Day.
Where Did National Senior Citizen Day Come From?
This is a special day of recognition that was first proclaimed by Ronald Reagan in 1988, in honor of the contributions and legacy created by our nation’s senior demographic, which is traditionally defined as above age 60.
An excerpt of Reagan’s Proclamation 5847 reads:
For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute. We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem by making sure that our communities are good places in which to mature and grow older — places in which older people can participate to the fullest and can find the encouragement, acceptance, assistance, and services they need to continue to lead lives of independence and dignity.
Celebrating Our Senior Citizens
Senior citizens are an integral part of our communities and the foundation upon which we all continue to grow. Without the achievements and wisdom of our elders, we wouldn’t be here today. They have given us so much to celebrate!
We are committed to creating high quality of life for our seniors. Make sure that you or your senior family members are drinking plenty of water, eating nutrient-dense foods, and getting regular, enjoyable movement like walking, dancing, or swimming to stay healthy and happy.
For our senior patients experiencing leg pain and vein issues, we provide comfortable, minimally-invasive treatments with very quick and gentle recoveries, so that life can get back to normal as soon as possible.
If you or your loved ones are complaining about pain in your legs, please call us at 512-726-0599 to schedule a free screening at one of our locations in Westlake or Round Rock.
