Resilience of Older Persons in a Changing World
In light of International Day of Older Persons we felt it was the perfect time for Prama to address the appreciation, respect and support we have for the people within the Prama community and across Dorset.
Within each entity of the charity, wehther that is PramaCare supporting people at home, PramaLife Age Friendly Communities or Prama Charity Shops Supporting PramaLife's Groups, Clubs and Activities. Prama is a charity that evolves around the wellbeing of Older Persons Across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
"The 2022 theme of International Day of Older Persons (UNIDOP) serves as a hallmark and reminder of the significant role older women play in traversing global challenges and contributing to their solutions with resilience and fortitude.
Recognizing the vital contributions of older women and promoting the inclusion of their voices, perspectives and needs are critical to creating meaningful policies to enhance a holistic response to local, national, and global challenges and catastrophes, UNIDOP 2022 is a call to action and opportunity aimed to embrace the voices of older women and showcase their resilience and contributions in society, while promoting policy dialogues to enhance the protection of older persons human rights and recognize their contributions to sustainable development." UN (2022)
Prama's community has enabled individuals to regain their independence, increase socialisation and overall boost happiness. There are specific groups and clubs tailored to support people living with Dementia and Memory Loss, although everyone is welcome to these groups there are 55+ groups to choose from as well as groups for carers.
