On 25th January, Samvedna Senior Care Foundation celebrated the 69th Republic Day at its senior centre in Gurgaon. The celebrations started with everyone marking their respect to the nation by singing the national anthem.
Members from our Cognitive Wellness Programme along with our team sang patriotic songs.
Our quizmaster Mr. Partha Basu conducted an interesting quiz for the seniors on Republic Day. The audience had their heads spinning to get the correct answers. The winner, Mrs. Khanna, was decided after an intense tie breaker.
The celebrations became livelier with seniors going down the memory lanes and sharing their unforgettable Republic Day experiences. Mrs. Asha Sood read one of her poem “Oh Insaan” to remind all that peace is the most beautiful thing and love should be our guide.
After having sweets and snacks, everyone enthusiastically danced to patriotic songs.
Team Samvedna wishes everyone a very Happy Republic Day.
Samvedna Senior Care was set up in 2013 with the aim of providing services for active ageing and dementia care in Delhi NCR.
We set up the Samvedna Senior Care Foundation in December 2016 to promote active ageing through senior centres, and events and workshops on subjects like learning smartphones, interpersonal relationships and more. We bring together dementia caregivers through a support group and have a programme for seniors with early dementia, depression or other minor cognitive impairments.
