Teeth are important at every age; Older Americans Month
Older Americans Month was established in 1963 to acknowledge the contributions of past and current older persons. We should take time to recognize the importance older persons bring to our society and pay tribute. The theme for 2020 is ‘Make Your Mark’. It was selected to encourage and celebrate the countless contributions that older adults make to our communities.
Think about your relationships and the people that have influenced you. We would not be where we are without the guidance and mentorship from others. Remember we can all make our mark by strengthening communities, supporting caregivers, and assisting older adults.
TePe would like to take some time to highlight some of our oral care products that older individuals may benefit from to maximize their well-being, health and independence.
TePe Extra Grip was developed to help those with reduced manual strength and dexterity by providing a comfortable, stable grip that will fit most TePe toothbrushes and special brushes.
