145 BGVK Along with PDMDS Promotes Healthy Aging in Shahapur, Newasa

Ahmednagar 2024: Bosco Gramin Vikas Kendra (BGVK) and the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorder Society (PDMDS) organized a special event for senior citizens in Shahapur, 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 objective was to raise awareness about Parkinson's disease and other neurological disorders and 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. Dhanshri welcomed everyone and explained the event's purpose. Mrs. Bhavana Ghatvisave from BGVK then informed 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 could share important information and interact with the community. Their aim is to promote healthy aging among seniors in villages in Ahmednagar.
