Bolton pensioners love life and learning
​​


A BOLTON group is hoping to reach out to new members as it hits 25 years old.

For more than two decades the University of the Third Age (U3A) has been bringing together retired and semi-retired people to learn together — not for qualifications, but for the joy of discovery.

While the word 'university' can appear daunting, the group is hoping to refresh its image in 2017 and reach out to more people.

Chairman Tony Pearson said: "It's an increasingly important group in the local community. Membership has been steadily increasing.

"Retired people taking matters into their own hands with a remit of lifelong learning and friendly recreational activities. Learn, Laugh, Live is our motto!

"For some people it's difficult to find activities, it depends on how outgoing an individual is.

"A lot of our members were alone and come to U3A after suffering a bereavement. Life has changed and they want to get back out there and meet people.

"We feel a lot of people in Bolton probably don't know enough about us and have never considered joining. We would love to get our message out there to more sectors of the community."

U3A is a national charity which was established in 1987 and the Bolton branch came along four years later.

It currently has 360 members but hopes to build up to at least 400 this year.

The group meets on the last Friday of every month and runs different activities throughout the year.

These can be anything from cultural visits, quizzes, quilting, music class and crafts to indoor bowls, lessons in Mandarin or classics, philosophy, photography, creative writing and rambling.

Mr Pearson added: "For a lot of people it is an absolute lifeline.

"They have a good time, keep their mind active, meet people, make new friends and be part of something.

"The idea is you are never to old to learn something new. When you reach retirement age you don't have to give up, it's quite the opposite. Get involved, keep your mind active."

The first meeting of 2017 for the Bolton U3A will take place on January 27 at St Andrew and St George Church in St George's Road, Bolton.

AMRITSAR Project to engage senior citizens in community activities to be launched

Project to engage senior citizens in community activities to be launched


Inderpreet Singh has been promoting the SPEEE project among citizens, especially students, in Amritsar on 

Tribune News Service

Amritsar, December 15

Implementing his concept of engaging the elderly in activities that bring about a social change and ensuring that their twilight years are productive, city-based youngster Inderpreet Singh has collaborated with Sarab Asara, a home for the old to engage them in community-based activities. He will also officially launch the programme called SPEEE (Society for Productive Engagement and Entertainment for Elderly) in collaboration with IVY Children. Inderpreet has roped in Dr Navjot Kaur Sidhu, who will launch the project on Saturday.
The project is designed to make senior citizens a part of the community skill development movement and make them self reliant. "Initially, we will be working with 12 senior citizens and impart them skills for programmes like mushroom farming, organic farming and other activities that help them keep busy and become productive. A small kitchen garden will be provided by Sarab Asara and the infrastructure will be provided by Dilbir Foundation," informed Inderpreet.
Sarab Asara, an initiative of the Youth For Global Transformation and Peace, will also provide land to expand upon the programme further. "We reached out to several volunteers from Khalsa College's agriculture department, who will guide the inmates about methods of farming. Also, a weekly medical checkup would also be done for free of cost, to take care of their health issues," he informed. The senior citizens will pair up with the underprivileged kids from IVY Children, for the skill development programme. It will include theatre training as well.
Calling his programme unique for the city, Inderpreet Singh said that the lack of avenues and regard for the life of senior citizens from the administration is disappointing. "Old age homes have attained a negative association, only considered as the abandonment ground for people who live with lost cause. I want to change that, working through the same elderly, making these homes a potential start-up hub."

Support Elders: A new destination for elderly people
India Blooms News Service

The company, which started its journey two years back, provides expert-verified customised geriatric care solutions by leveraging technology and their team of trained, ex-army professionals.

Speaking about the organisation, co-founder Apratim Chattopadhyay said: "I was looking for an organisation that can provide comprehensive speciality care to elders and parents."

The organisation already has over 100 members.

The organisation carries out joint operation with Woodlands Hospital, Kolkata to provide the medical facilities to its members and also has tie-ups with other hospitals like Belle Vue Clinic and AMRI.

The Silver Circle, which is a joint initiative of Support Elders and Calcutta Metropolitan Institute, brings the concept of U3A (University of the Third Age) where retired and semi-retired people can come together to share their skills and experiences.

Chattopadhay,CEO of the organisation, said: "U3A provides life-long learning. Our members learn different instruments and then they can carry it out as their hobby."

Support Elders provides a smart watch to all its members with geo-location tracker, voice communication device and alert button to rescue them in an emergency situation.
​​

The organisation aims to open its services outside the city in the near future.

"We are mainly targeting the tier 1 and tier 2 cities to expand our organisation and that will be decided in the next fiscal year," the CEO said.

The cost of the integrated services provided by Support Elders is currently Rs 2,000 rupees (excluding tax) per month per head
