Studies abound on the health benefits—not to mention happiness—of having a spouse and a nurturing relationship, especially as we age. But what are the secrets to a long love life? Emeritus Senior Living wants to help you find out. In honor of Valentine’s Day, Emeritus Senior Living, a national provider of assisted living and Alzheimer's and related dementia care services to seniors, is holding a Facebook contest that encourages fans to share personal and family love stories. Emeritus’ “Lifetime of Love” contest gives fans the opportunity to share their own love stories or family love stories that have been passed down from parents and grandparents. Fans are encouraged to post their love stories as comments to the “Valentines Day Contest” tab on the Emeritus Senior Living Facebook page. One grand prize winner will receive a $500 American Express gift card. Twenty additional winners will receive a $100 American Express gift card. All winners will be announced via Facebook on February 15th, 2010. The inspiration behind the Emeritus “Lifetime of Love” contest comes from sharing the personal stories and journeys of many of the residents who live at its 316 communities across the country. Among the residents who have shared their heartwarming love stories with Emeritus are four Garden Grove, California couples who are scheduled to renew their wedding vows at Emeritus at Garden Manor community in a group ceremony on February 12th, 2010.
