In Oct 2009 Silver Innings had launched one of its kinds in India Silver Innings Gero-Psychological Care Programme Senior Citizens in India, Holistic approach to our elderly.
Initially this Helpline/programme is available in Mumbai MMRDA region only.
One of the most important aspects of being human is our emotional or psychological nature. Our Gero-psychological care program, therefore, is founded on the belief that even the very best physical care is not sufficient as there is something more to it. During this time of transition--often from independent to community living, from self-sufficient to increasing dependency--emotional and psychological care are especially crucial.
Our elderly can encounter psychologically painful issues of loss and adjustments in lifestyle, often complicated by medical problems, memory loss, and depression requiring specialized care. We offer program that addresses the psycho-social-emotional needs of Senior Citizens. This is a specialized program that focuses on the unique psychological and emotional needs of the Elderly.
Silver Innings trusts that Elderly are best looked after and cared for in their own homes environment and community. With our experience we understand that our Elderly are looking for that human comfort and caring. This service will be provided in home, Institutions and consulting rooms depending on the need of the individual or group.
The ultimate goal of this programme is to bring that Hope, the Sense of Belonging and 'Smile' on the face of our Elderly."
Trained Clinical Psychologist and Volunteers will provide these services.
