Support Group Meetings

The very first activity which Graceful Living conducted was a Support Group Meeting in collaboration with the Department of Geriatric Medicine, Jaslok Hospital on 19th December’2018.

Graceful Living started off with conducting Support Group Meetings once every month which were held at Jaslok Hospital. This involved seniors from various senior citizens associations as participants of these Support Group Meetings.

The main purpose of Support Group Meetings is to disseminate knowledge regarding various aging related issues and to provide a platform for seniors to explore and unfold their potential. It is also a forum for them to share their stories, views and experiences.

Post pandemic, Graceful Living conducts Support Group Meetings with various senior citizens associations in their meeting places. Graceful Living has formed contacts with more than 50 Senior Citizens Associations in which these Support Group Meetings are held.

Considering its long standing experience with Senior Citizens Associations, Graceful Living conducted a workshop for representatives of Senior Citizens Associations last year in association with MMP Shah College of Arts and Commerce with a view to enhance their role, add value to their programs and empower them to reach out to more senior citizens.

Some of the topics which have been covered in Support Group Meetings are ‘Understanding Gerontology’, ‘Successful Aging’, ‘Brain Gym Exercises’, ‘Importance of Curiosity in Old Age’, ‘Logotherapy and Aging’, ‘Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy and Aging’.
