International Day of Older Persons 2017

During the first week of October we celebrate Older Persons Week and on October 1 it is the International Day of Older Persons. The United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Older Persons is observed on October 1 each year as a special day for older persons worldwide. On December 14, 1990, the United Nations General Assembly (by resolution 45/106) designated October 1 the International Day of Older Persons. The holiday was observed for the first time on October 1, 1991.
