WE will all experience the “circle of life” and inevitably reach old age and it is important to note that at this stage in one’s life, nothing matters more than love, so why not shower seniors with buckets of love?

The campaign aims to turn attention to the elderly who have little to look forward to on this day of love and Tafta invites the community to give the ultimate gift of goodness by spreading the love and sharing a hug with a resident.

For many, a hug is a common exchange, one that is easily taken for granted, but for hundreds of lonely, sick or stressed senior citizens, it is a powerful emotional gesture that offers immeasurable comfort and joy.

A single embrace offers numerous therapeutic benefits, including decreasing stress and reducing depression. A sense of appreciation has also proven to stimulate happiness.
