A discussion session was held with members of Snehvardhan Seniors Association, Bimanagar Society. We were kept informed about Graceful Living and its activities/various programs. A forum like Graceful Living is so appropriate for senior citizens these days. Rarely do you find an organization that focuses on the problems and needs of the elderly.

All meetings of GL are excellent. What I enjoy most are Dr Prem’s sessions on medical issues. They provide us with vital information on well-being and fitness. I love attending these meetings.

I was a first-time participant in the Zoom meet of 5 May. I enjoyed singing and listening to others. An excellent concept by Graceful Living to engage senior citizens and exhibit their various talents like singing, story-telling and poetry recitation. I appreciate the sincere efforts put in by the Graceful Living team. Keep up the good work.
Ms. Mangla Kadam

I have been attending Graceful Living meetings since the last four months. GL always does its best for senior citizens by arranging the right programs required for them. I have attended the multi-lingual songs meet and the Gupshup sessions. On World Health Day, a meeting conducted by Dr Prem on Healthy Life & Healthy Ageing was really good. Keep it up.

This is a note of thanks from the Dignity Foundation’s Vashi Centre for conducting an excellent session on "Successful Ageing" on April 12, 2023. We are extremely grateful to Mrs. Amruta Lovekar and Graceful Living for this. Such amazing insights and in-depth perspectives, laced with her amazing quotes, intertwined with interesting anecdotes and true stories! The Hindi poems were the icing on the cake! It was a not-to-be-missed session! Further, we would request that she conduct at least one session per month, as our members really find her sessions very helpful.
Ms. Latika Naik
Nana Nani School
Meeting conducted on January 27 at Nana Nani School on Brain Gym Exercise was excellent, and clarity of presentation was excellent. It was encouraging for participation. The topic was relevant because it was related to the brain. We never thought of brain exercise as something that would increase memory and help keep the brain alert, active, and healthy. Thank you for conducting this useful meeting.
Mr. Rasesh Shroff

Regular attendee of Support Group Meetings (online)
I am very grateful to Graceful Living for arranging webinars and guest lectures on issues related to ageing. I personally like to attend all the online programs. Recently, the guest talk on 'The role of neuropsychology in ageing' was an eye-opener in which Dr Shraddha Shah explained the topic in a very interesting and empathetic way, focussing on memory and brain function. I liked the prevention part very much, where she articulated on 'how to follow a neuro-plastic lifestyle'. Thanks once again for conducting such useful and informative programs for senior citizens.
Ms. Rashida Chittalwala

The guest lecture held on 23 March was very good, Dr A K Sen Gupta gave maximum information in a short time, and I liked it very much because we all want to live life with happiness no matter what the situation is; it is not something in our hands, so to do what is in our hands is to give joy and enjoy.
