Day Care Centre for the Elderly

Seniors are prone to experience loneliness…

With their children having moved overseas or to other parts of India for career reasons, elderly people experience the effects of ‘Empty Nest’ syndrome with attendant loneliness and depression. As they age, seniors get deprived of social interaction and mental stimulation. They also face old-age disabilities, health problems and in many cases, financial difficulties too.

It is important that seniors combat loneliness by socially engaging with others. For an enhanced quality of life, they need to lead an active life, maintain relationships and perform activities that are meaningful to them. Maintaining a sharp mental faculty is as vital as being physically active.

Day care centres are here to boost the spirits of seniors…

Day care centres have facilities like newspapers, magazines, a good library, television and computers. At day care centres seniors socially engage and interact with their peers of their own age group. Their spirits are boosted and mood is uplifted by bonding, sharing and laughter. The centres offer wide range of activities to keep the elderly occupied with activities designed to meet physical, emotional and social needs.

The activities include memory games, physiotherapy, songs, meditation, counseling, medical check-ups, picnics etc. Talks and interactive sessions on topics of interest such as health and age-related issues, current affairs, etc. are also conducted. Members get to learn new arts, crafts and games. Birthdays, special days and religious festivals are celebrated.

Some of the centres are run purely on donations with no payment required from the seniors, whereas other centres may charge a monthly fee. Lunch facility is available at some centres or the senior person can carry a dry-lunch from home while leaving for the centre. Some centres have pick-up and drop facility, while other centres expect the elderly to travel on their own or be dropped and picked-up by their children or relatives.
