What is Active Aging?
Keeping oneself active and having meaningful purposes through participating/engaging in social activities, workshops, giving back to the community by helping others that needed assistance.
We have been actively involved in curating art learning for our seniors as we radically believed in life-long learning and this is also about self-care. Seniors took part in the art learning to use what they have learnt and to do bonding activities with their grandchildren and/or volunteered their time to do some simple art with other seniors at the seniors’ corner as they have mobility issues to travel. This creates a sense of purpose for the seniors.
