Challenge

There is absolutely no system in place for the care of the elderly in Nigeria. . There are no day care facilities or care needs for the elderly or any functional social security service for the elderly people in Nigeria, this has really heightened the challenge and most elderly people are isolated and suffer loneliness and depression.

Solution

The goal of this project is to give elderly people somewhere to go during the day so they remain in touch with other Adults their age . This project will delay or prevent institulization by providing alternative care and encourage socialisation which will include Arts and craft, Musical entertainment and sing alongs , mental stimulation games such as bingo , discussion groups and gentle exercises.

Long-Term Impact

This project will enable the elderly people to benefit from the friendship and functional assistance and experience daily routine. This will also enable the elderly people to overcome a host of age related issues including dementia, depression, loneliness, fatigue and loss of brain function and giving them an overall quality of life .

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
