Grandparents Day – the perfect opportunity to show grandparents how much we care for them.

16:36 03 March in News

Grandmothers and grandparents play a very important role in family life. They help with everyday tasks, with childcare, are often irreplaceable for the union of work and family, and, most importantly, pass on their invaluable knowledge and life experiences to the next generations.
According to the Swiss Federal Statistical Office, grandparents in Switzerland provide 160 million hours of unpaid care every year. This corresponds to an economic output of over 8 billion Swiss francs*.

8 March is Grandparent’s Day – time to thank those who quietly make a big difference in the background every day! What better way to demonstrate our feelings than give our grandparents the gift of personal safety?

In fact, studies show that when we are able to fulfill our desires, our life satisfaction increases, our health improves and our self-esteem rises, which is also beneficial for our family and friends.
