Story

LET'S ADD LIFE TO YEARS AND YEARS TO LIFE!

Sedentary lifestyle is one of the major factors for deteriorating health among older adults. In recent times several studies have indicated that older adults with sedentary lifestyle are impacted more by COVID 19 and their recovery is taking much longer. There are several other reasons along with sedentary lifestyles including depression, loneliness, lack of support. Vulnerable older adults in old age and shelter homes are furthermore impacted due to limited resources.

Siel Bleu India project in partnership with Dream India Network is supporting post COVID recovery and improve health well-being of older adults through Adaptive Physical Activity (APA). APA is a specially designed and customized program of developmental activities, games, sports, and rhythms suited to the interests, capabilities, and limitations of older adults. APA also helps vulnerable older adults to fight depression, loneliness and assist in leading an overall healthy lifestyle.
