Yes I can foundation as a part of the project Saksham has been conducting a training series known as beyond boundaries where we are training for diversity and inclusion. As a part of this we are happy to share our skillling project which we completed with caregivers who work for blind senior citizens. There is a lot of difference when you take care of a sighted elderly and when you look after visually challenged elderly. Our special skilling focuses on mobility, focusing on other senses while managing blind senior citizens. Kudos to our participants and our visually challenged senior citizens and team Yes I Can.

Community living for senior citizens is relatively a new concept in India as compared to other countries. However there are community living residential care colonies are emerging and some of them are successful in terms of bringing all senior citizens together to spend their happy time. We are happy to share that Yes I Can Foundation accomplished Geriatric training for the caregivers in the community living facility in Pune City ( Utsav Care community living). The training program consists of theory as well as practical experiences for all the participants. As an impact participants are trained as Geriatric professionals who are already working as a caregivers. Most of these participants come from an underprivileged background from small villages near Pune. The training consists of government of India certification to the community living facility.

VISION is most important in elder care then Sight - We are proud to share that we completed our project known as Beyond Boundaries in Saksham where we trained visually challenged girls as geriatric caregivers. The project focuses more on how visually challenged can use their other senses then sight and help elderly in terms of acupressure / foot reflexology and general well being.
You can too give them an opportunity by inviting them for a session for seniors at your place and colonies. Say Yes I Can and write to firstname.lastname@example.org
