105 BGVK and PDMDS Spread Awareness on Healthy Ageing in Ahmednagar

Ahmednagar, 2024: Bosco Gramin Vikas Kendra (BGVK) and Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorder Society (PDMDS) organized a special event for senior citizens in Newasa, Ahmednagar district. The event was part of their 'Healthy Aging' project.

Healthy aging means staying healthy, active and independent as you grow older. The goal is to help older people live fulfilling lives.

The main goal of this workshop was to raise awareness about Parkinson's disease and other neurological disorders, and to improve the quality of life, independence, and overall health of older adults.

The Healthy Aging program covers topics like exercise, healthy eating, brain health, social activities and preventive healthcare.

Mr. Sandip Berad welcomed everyone and explained what the event was about. Mrs. Bhavana Ghatvisave from BGVK then told the seniors about art therapy, yoga, physiotherapy, counseling, dance therapy, speech therapy, nutrition and other health topics.

The seniors asked many questions which Mrs. Bhavana answered. They thanked BGVK for the event and requested monthly sessions.

By working together, BGVK and PDMDS were able to share important information and interact with the community. Their aim is to promote healthy aging among seniors in villages in Ahmednagar.
