Elderlies are often referred to as a homogenous group and are often identified as a large group of stereotypes. However, in reality, older adults are at least as diverse & versatile as everyone else. They hold a vast array of untapped interests, skills and experience; but it is because of their growing age and sense of isolation from their loved ones, that keep them unattached with the social world.
That’s why community participation and social interaction have become far more necessary parts of our life, especially for the elderlies. By taking part in social, cultural and spiritual activities, older adults can gain lost confidence, remain informed and establish or maintain supportive & caring relationships.
Community participation also help the seniors gain the respect and esteem they deserve in the society. Besides, such activities emancipate elderlies from the distressing effects of isolation as well as providing the physical & mental health benefits.
That’s why at ZedCare, we believe in supporting you to connect and participate in your own community every day. Social participation and social support are strongly recommended for good health and well-being throughout life.
