About Grandparents Day

Grandparents Day was recognized in Canada in 1995 as falling on the second Sunday in September to acknowledge the importance of grandparents to "the structure of the family in the nurturing, upbringing, and education of children... [Grandparents play] a critical role in strengthening the family."

In 2019, Providence Healthcare is fundraising online for Grandparents Day so we can demonstrate:

  • How much your grandparents mean to you

  • How much you value your parents being grandparents to your children

  • How much you appreciate your children and grandchildren

Why Is Providence Getting Involved?

We do everything we can to show our patients how important they are because we understand how essential that is to health and quality of life. Many of our patients, residents and clients are seniors and grandparents so every little gift will mean a lot.
