25th Senior Ladies Day

Woman Care Trust successfully celebrated their 25th Senior Ladies Day on 26th June 2017 at Learning Centre. About 80-90 ladies attended the event. As usual we started our function with reciting holy prayer “Chaupai Sahib Path” After prayer all the ladies recited “Shabad , these prayers are not only a way of connecting to god but also provide peace of mind and positive thinking to the ladies attending the function. After the prayers ladies did some exercise. Exercise for seniors offers a variety of key benefits that improve overall quality of life. Regular, moderate physical activity can help manage stress and improve your mood. And, being active on a regular basis may help reduce feelings of depression WCT had arranged for Tea and Indian snack “Samosa” and Indian sweets for the ladies. After the tea break ladies played some traditional games. Most of the senior people are reluctant to do any exercise due to isolation, these games are way of motivating them to do some activity in group. Studies also suggest that exercise can improve or maintain some aspects of cognitive function, such as your ability to shift quickly between tasks, plan an activity, and ignore irrelevant information. There are smiles and laughter among the participants which help the ladies in overcoming depression and loneliness from their life. Baljit Dheil then distributed prizes to the game winners to keep them motivated and feel energetic. After playing games WCT had arranged Naturopathy health session for the ladies in which Dr Kamal provided important information on “Women & Menopause issues, about the symptoms and ways to deal with it in natural way and managing healthy diet chart in our daily eating schedule, Dr Kamal also answered personal health issues of the ladies. After the health session, all the ladies danced on Punjabi folk songs. Indian lunch was arranged for the ladies Indian lentil, cottage cheese, capsicum curry, rice and bread. Spending time with the ladies improves their social network and kept them engaged. All the ladies witnessed the successful celebration of the Seniors Ladies Day and also this achievement is another step for Woman Care Trust in achieving its goal of Woman’s Wellbeing and Community Development.
