#GetHealthy Elders Day - Serving our Senior Citizens
Updated: Feb 25, 2019
NIC launched the first GetHealthy Elders Day at the Jadoonandan Ballgobin Home, St Paul Rd, Vacoas.
The GetHealthy Elders Day aims to raise health awareness for our elderly and the need for palliative care through free health tests and check-ups.
With the collaboration of our NIC team, our health partners Sports Medicine Clinic and Patel Optics and the staff members of the Jadoonandan Ballgobin Home, 36 senior citizens were provided with free health check-ups, pain assessment screening and eye tests.
The GetHealthy Elders Day is an initiative of our nationwide Community Engagement Programme to make Healthy Living accessible to the Mauritian nation.
As part of this ongoing initiative, the NIC GetHealthy Elders Day will be conducted across the island. Stay tuned.
