Older Persons month is celebrated annually during the month of October in the Cayman Islands and this year on 1 October the United Nations marked the 30th anniversary of the International Day of Older Persons.  This year’s theme is “Pandemics: Do They Change How We Address Age and Ageing?” focuses on promoting the assurance of healthy lives and well-being at all ages, a key area of focus during the global pandemic. 

As we honour and celebrate our elderly this month, the Human Rights Commission reminds everyone   that human rights are a shared responsibility and upholding another person’s rights is just as important as upholding our own.
