Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital will launch a senior citizen’s club – Live 360 @60 to positively address the major concerns of these elderly people, much more than providing special healthcare and attention.
The club, an innovative initiative by the iconic hospital, will help the elderly to live a healthy comfortable life by understanding about the health problems and risks, coming together to beat the `empty nest’ feelings, sharing the success stories and participating in games and exercises.
The launch of Live 360@60 on July 16 will be followed by the screening of Bollywood movie `Barefoot to Goa’ that narrates the story of two children who leave home to get back their ill and estranged grandmother living in another town suffering from cancer. Expert talk by Dr Dudhat on cancer in ageing population and sharing of stories by cancer survivors will also be held.
“The idea behind the initiative is to guide, assist and educate the senior citizens for their physical and mental well-being. The club will also try to engage them in innovative wellness activities that will keep
Them healthy and happy,” said Dr. Rajendra Patankar, COO, Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital
According to 2011 census, India had 98 million elderly people population, and the number is expected to touch 200 million by 2018. Maharashtra Government, through a recent survey, found that over 42, 000 senior citizens live in Mumbai on their own.
The purpose of the club is also to make the younger generation aware of health check-ups to rule out or manage diseases that have genetic tendency and prepare them to age gracefully. The club, that will bring together the elderly members, will also organise health talk by expert every month. The hospital will issue privilege cards that would make sure that ample care and attention are given to the members.
Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital is organising the launch event in association with the International Association of Lion’s Club – District 323 A3.
