Happy Valentine's Day!

https://www.nia.nih.gov/news/social-isolation-loneliness-older-people-pose-health-risks


Happy Valentine's Day from SVFH. Today is a day we celebrate with those we love and let them know how much they mean to us. For many people, they observe this day alone. Elderly, esp those that are homebound or that are in the nursing home, experience loneliness on this day. Social isolation can lead to many health related problems such as cognitive decline, depression and heart disease. Today, we want to encourage you to reach out to those you know that are isolated or lonely and wish them a Happy Valentine's Day. Five minutes of your day can make a world of difference in the day of someone who is lonely or experiencing depression. Enjoy today with those you LOVE!
