A special day for the elderly

Residents of the Douglas Murray Home were treated to a day of pampering, including hand massages, pedicures, manicures and haircuts, on Saturday. The event was organised by the Restoring Hope Association (RHA) a non-profit organisation, with support from the municipality. Dale Hendricks, the director of RHA, said many elderly people were neglected by society despite the sacrifices they had made, and the day was about making them feel loved and appreciated.
