Never Forgetting our Elderly Loved Ones This Holiday Season

The holidays are all about good tidings, get-togethers, giving thanks, and all things merry. But amidst the merriment, sometimes, our dear elderly are left off while we, the younger ones, get preoccupied by the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Year. With this, it is a must that we extend a helping hand to our grandparents and elderly loved ones most especially during these holiday season. Let’s ensure that they’re safe, healthy, and happy — not just these holidays but all year round. In doing so, we’ll be glad that we spent even just a little bit of time to make them feel special. After all, when they were still in their prime years, they were the ones who were caring for us. It’s time

Many find it difficult to abandon, most especially since they have been used to doing it to alleviate stress, cause relaxation, and a whole lot more reasons. By the time they reach older adulthood, they also think that there’s no point in stopping because after all, their lungs have already been damaged. According to the National Cancer Institute, however, there’s still hope. In their recent study, they found that smokers who are in their 60s will still have lower rates of mortality compared to those in their 70s.
