LET'S GO CLUBBING!
Our Antakshari Club members are now thoroughly enjoying the mixed-format sessions—they are given a few prompts like key words or retro movie clips or instrumental music clips and members have to sing songs with those prompts or identify the songs, the lyricist, music directors and the singers. Our members eagerly wait for the sessions and we love the buzz and excitement. Come and join these exciting sessions at 11:30 a.m. on Mondays and at 4:45 p.m. on Tuesdays.
Last month saw us celebrating our members on 1st October—the International Day of Older Persons. We had a very engaging discussion on a topic very close to my heart. It has always seemed a very prudent idea to me to actively involve elders in all spheres of life. With their immense knowledge, gained through years of experience, as well as their objectivity, elders are in a position to not only guide us gently forward but also be at the helm of things, be it corporate or creative. It was also heart-warming to see the wonderful performances of some of our members.
Though the pandemic is slowly losing pace and will hopefully peter out soon, we cannot afford to forget the lessons taught by this pandemic. Just the way, masks and sanitizers are here to stay, so is the change in our healthcare system. For instance, we, at Support Elders, continue to see a high demand for our Well@Home service, as this technology-backed comprehensive solution enables remote health monitoring, thereby reducing the need for regular visits to clinics/hospitals. The member’s general physician or doctor can even define the health parameters to be measured and define medical rules, basis the thresholds and can access the data captured, as and when required. Similarly, our virtual programmes and clubs have become an integral part of our members’ lives and will be here to stay, although we plan to organise offline events when things get better. With that in mind, let us enjoy the festive season and look forward to 2022 with renewed faith and hope.
