Our Elderly and the Family

“ How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these. ”
George Washington Carver

The extended family and community has traditionally been the support network for the senior members of families. With a decrease in the number of children, increased demands on time for the working adults of the family, a distancing that comes from urbanised dwelling places, our senior family members may frequently spend time alone. Morning Star aims to address the needs of these family members through our outreach projects and befriending of our volunteers.
