This project Plans to help tackle Loneliness in older people. To provide older people the opportunity to get out of the house and receive both mental and social stimulation by creating Adult day care services in the community here in Lagos Nigeria which will help the older people stay in their community and function well to the best of their ability
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.
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.
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 .
