CROYDON October 2: With the onset of Winter, and with GPs offering precautionary Flu Jabs to the elderly, Kerala Cultural & Welfare Association (KCWA) has too set in with the relauch of their ‘Prim Club’ to prepare the elderly to evade the harsh winter.
The events are a great opportunity for people to get together, talk about their experiences and find out more about groups, activities and support that is available to them in their neighbourhood.
The International Day of Older Persons is observed every year on October 1 to focus on issues that affect the aged, such as dementia and the abuse of old individuals. This is also a day when we should sit back and remember all the contributions that have been made to society by old people.
It was on December 14, 1990, that the United Nations General Assembly voted to establish this date as the International Day of Older Persons. The next year, the day was observed as a holiday.
The International Day of Older Persons is similar to National Grandparents Day in the United States and Canada and also Respect for the Aged Day in Japan.
Venue address: Holy Saviour Church Hall, 115 St Saviours Road, Croydon, CR0 2XF.
