Markham House Celebrates National Senior Citizens Day

Markham House Celebrates National Senior Citizens Day

Markham House celebrated National Senior Citizens Day on August 21 with a Golden Age radio program. National Senior Citizens Day is a day set aside to recognize the achievements of seniors in America, giving the country an opportunity to show appreciation for a lifetime of dedication, accomplishment, and service.

To celebrate National Senior Citizens Day, Markham House residents and staff came together to relive old time radio. Radio was the first broadcast tool that today’s senior generation experienced and families gathered around the radio daily to listen to the news and be entertained.

Our old-time radio program brought childhood memories to life with big band music, unforgettable old-time commercials, and a game called “Name That Show” where residents guessed the names of famous shows playing at the time. We also had snacks and candies and drinks that our residents would have enjoyed with their families around the radio. Residents remarked,

“That was a great program!”

“I remembered most of the ads and shows!”

We truly enjoyed giving our residents the opportunity to relive some of their favorite childhood memories and radio programs on National Senior Citizens Day. We would love for you to stop by Markham House and see how we celebrate our residents and their incredible life stories every day! Call or stop by today for a tour!

Live Big. Live Bold.
