At Golden Horizons, we value life. Our daily mission is to help our seniors remain in their home, maximize their ease and self-sufficiency, and enjoy the independent living they cherish. We want to help them LIVE WELL! One way to help others live well is to participate in the Pink Whale Challenge. The Pink Whale Challenge was started in direct response to the Blue Whale Challenge. Their mission is to counteract the Blue Whale Challenge by spreading daily messages of positivity and appreciation.
