Nominate a Local Senior for Valentine’s Day Friendship and Cheer

Jan 18th @ 8:01 am in Local Events, News, People, Public Service by Scott Staley

Do you know a senior in the Montrose area who will be alone at home this Valentine’s Day? You are invited to nominate him or her to receive a free Valentine’s meal at home with gifts and friends. This contest is the brainchild of Sunrise Creek Senior Living community. One local senior will be chosen as the recipient from among those nominated by the public.

“At the time of year that we celebrate love, it’s important to extend caring and friendship to the senior generation,” said Tony Licwinko, Executive Director of Sunrise Creek. “We know that many will spend Valentine’s Day on their own. For those who have lost spouses, it can be a sad occasion that contributes to feelings of loneliness. Family and friends may live far away, and perhaps physical challenges limit their ability to get out into the greater community. We hope to brighten the day for one of these seniors through festivities and friendship.”

Bringing Valentine’s Day caring to a local senior is part of the philosophy of Sunrise Creek’s assurance that seniors are living “safely somewhere.”
“What that means is we believe it is crucial for seniors to live in environments that enhance their well-being, whether they reside with us or somewhere else. That is why we would like to offer this special occasion on Valentine’s Day,” Licwinko said.

To suggest a senior, please provide:
1. His or her name and contact information.
2. Your contact information.
3. A brief explanation of why you are nominating this person.

Submissions are due to the community by Thursday, Feb. 7. Please send your nominations to attention Erin Berge, Community Relations Director, at either, or fax to 970-240-0601, or by mail to 1968 Sunrise Drive, by that date.
Sunrise Creek provides independent living, assisted living, and memory care and is operated by Emeritus Senior Living.
