The Silver Innings Foundation, which works in the field of elder care, counselling and assisted living for senior citizens, among other things, yesterday organised a series of activities for elders at the YWCA, Andheri. A few students from Nirmala Niketan College of Social Work also participated in the events.
The Foundation’s events were a good success, with about 50 elders participating. Says Sailesh Mishra, Founder President, Silver Innings, “We did a street play, then an interactive PPT talk. We also conducted a memory checkup and held memory games and exercise for the elders. There was also a sharing session by family care givers, and the best part was the dance in which everybody took part!”
