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
As a part of project Saksham in Geriatric training we focus on handling emergency situations and hence it is important to learn through practice then mere theory.
Here are the glimpses of some of our practice sessions.
