Uplifting The Elderly Folks

Today marks the International Day for Older Persons, and we're bringing that into the spotlight. First up, we look into how older persons contribute to the economy. Next, we dive into how seniors can remain independent, and the kind of systems that are needed to support that. Finally, the best ways for them to care about their mental and emotional wellbeing.
