    After the warm and enthusiastic feedback from the first session on Active Ageing for senior residents of  Tuscan Estate, Pune, we were requested to conduct a follow up session focusing on sensitization of youth. So, on public demand our Founder Dr. Nidhi Mishra conducted an interactive session for younger residents of Tuscan Estate which aimed at myth busting and creating awareness on Positive Ageing.

    In this session participants were made to do certain exercises through which they were sensitized about various needs and rights of elders in the society. They were also asked to list out various ways in which elders can be made to lead an active life.

    We were happy to see the enthusiasm of the younger generation towards this cause.

    There is a lot to be gained from promoting interaction between youth and elders, on both sides.

    Congrats to Ms. Nidhi for having such a session with innovation and creativity. Also congrats to her with thanks for sharing the same on this Forum and FB. Youth at any place will play a key role to support SENIORS at family & community. This is on one side. On the other side it helps to gain the advantage of learning & developing systems and values as a change maker.

    Such programs will help everyone to move towards happy and healthy living with improved quality of life. The challenges out of mad rush towards luxury life can be minimized for moving towards simple living and high thinking. Looking forward.
