2014 was a great year that’s filled with love and charity. We, together with the Stress Relievers, enjoyed a lot of good memories helping those who are in need and we can’t wait to help more people out. To kick off another year of our Happy Hour events, we are dedicating this month’s affair to benefit the seniors in nursing homes.
Valentine’s Day is coming and people are excited. Most of us are looking forward to receiving or giving chocolates and bouquets of flowers to and from our loved ones. Most of us may also be wishing for romantic, candlelit dinners. But let us not forget that there are seniors living in nursing homes who may not have visitors on this momentous day. In fact, studies claim that about 60% of residents in long-term care facilities or nursing homes never get visits from their loved ones. Unfortunately, more than 50% of residents no longer have close relatives who can see them. And even more so, 46% do not have children. With all these in mind, we believe that it is up to us to fill their hearts with joy.

Who Are The Stress Relievers?
The Stress Relievers is an informal group of family-owned companies that deliver services to property managers, building owners and board members in Miami Dade, and Broward. The group is driven by the goal of creating enjoyable and yet enlightening events that focus on the improvement of life in the community.
