About this Project:

Po Leung Kok Chu Lee Yuet Wah Day Care Centre for the Elderly provides comprehensive medical services, nursing care and other social activities to seniors of the neighbourhood by catering to their different physical and mental needs. Hoping to improve their overall quality of life and to provide further support to their carers, the elderly centre also delivers supportive programs and other education services to enhance the elderly’s confidence and the ability of their carers in performing different care duties while relieving their stress.

AYC is delighted to be offered an opportunity to provide a series of yoga sessions for elderly of the centre going forward. As you may already know, yoga can be significantly beneficial to seniors as the practice itself can often help to strengthen their muscles, improve their body balance and blood circulation, as well as to reduce stress and anxiety. It is a precious chance for them to experience the physical and mental benefits of yoga and to instill a sense of confidence in them.

Details of the project are as follows:

Time: 2:30pm – 3:30pm

關於這個項目:

保良局朱李月華長者日間護理中心為本地區的長者提供全面的醫療服務、護理照顧和其他社交活動,以滿足他們不同的身體和心理需求。中心希望改善長者的整體生活質量,並為他們的照顧者提供進一步的支持,因此提供支援性計劃和其他教育服務,以提升長者的信心和照顧者在執行不同照顧職責時的能力,同時減輕他們的壓力。

AYC很高興有機會為該中心的長者提供一系列瑜伽課程。正如你可能已經知道的,瑜伽對長者有顯著的益處,練習本身通常有助於增強他們的肌肉、改善身體平衡和血液循環,同時減輕壓力和焦慮。這對他們來說是一個寶貴的機會,可以體驗瑜伽的身心益處,並培養他們的信心。
