On 14 October, Tshepo Community Development Initiative, the Ekklesia Park Retirement Village and Home for the Aged and Domus Dei congregation joined forces to host a lovely morning for the elderly community. The theme of the morning spoke to how to grow older, better.
A nurse talked to the group on health care: what to look out for, helpful tips and looking after yourself. Exercises were shown, to improve mobility and overall wellbeing that each person can do in his/her own space.
The floor was opened for the community to share their struggles, thoughts and desires. This was done to not only lend an ear, but also to help us understand how to serve the elderly community better in ways that they will benefit from.
We are grateful for the partner that made this morning happen and to gaining insight into ways to serve our community better.
