API Care and Counselling is happy to organise this workshop to help participants learn about practical tools to navigate older adulthood with vitality and foster resilience in the face of challenges

Singaporeans are living longer than any previous generation, but they may also live with more chronic health conditions and fear of cognitive decline. We invite you to participate in our upcoming holistic workshop designed to provide you with the knowledge and practical tools to navigate older adulthood with vitality. In this workshop, we will delve into the physical and cognitive changes associated with aging, offering participants insights into sustaining optimal health and mobility as they enter this phase of life.

Through small group discussions and reflective exercises, participants will foster resilience in the face of challenges such as life transitions and physical decline. Moreover, we will delve into preventative health strategies and explore the contribution of healthy attitudes towards aging and spirituality for holistic well-being, personal growth, and community connections.
