Palauan culture does much to honour the elderly, and the people of Palau consider the way the young treat the old as a key indicator of the state of the culture. Therefore, Palau runs numerous government programs designed to help its seniors and provide for their well-being in a comprehensive way. Senior Citizen’s Day is a time when new such projects are often announced.

On Senior Citizen’s Day, there are often public events, including street parades, special lunches, educational seminars, cultural exhibits, and live performances. There are dances where both old and young dance together, special trips organised for seniors, and family celebrations where everyone shows appreciation for their older loved ones.
