- Every October 1 since 1990, the United Nations has honored older adults worldwide on the International Day of Older Persons. The theme each year draws attention to an important need faced by older adults. Not surprisingly, last year the spotlight was on the effect of a pandemic on elders. In previous years, themes included ageism, inclusivity, older workers, elder justice, and the many gifts older adults bring to their cultures.
