Featured: The Seniors Health Project

Defy Ageism with our Seniors Fitness Website, Podcast & Magazine for Seniors mental & Physical well being.

Funded by Gvt. Canada- ESDC – New Horizon For Seniors Project(2023).

This NHS-Project, (New Horizon For Seniors Project) funded by Gvt Canada’s ESDC, addresses ageism via a Seniors Fitness App, Podcast, & Website for Seniors Mental & Physical well-being.

By allowing Seniors to run and be in control of their own Project via a Senior Editorial and Task Force Committee- and by allowing them to run the podcasts – SSMC shall capacitate seniors and make them the health tool “mouthpieces”. Seniors and SSMC shall portray both the exercises and healthy food/ diet and recipes on monthly Website and Newsletter.

The pain, stigma and after effects caused by Covid 19- though still lingering with us and the Seniors, shall be ameliorated by the engagement of senior exercises and that will keep seniors engaged. Further, a Seniors Editorial Board shall collate the info and experiences and tabulate them in the Podcasts, Website and Newsletter. By being constantly engaged the project addresses senior social isolation , thus supporting healthy aging. It also bridges the gap between seniors and the youth, through mentorship and operating across all functions. Further National Priorities are advanced because the benefits of the Seniors Fit App- and recipes and healthy dietary tips are not restricted only to South Sudanese- but are open for all and sundry.

By being at the forefront of this Project, seniors are constantly mentally alert, fit and engaged and this addresses ageism, dementia and mental health. The showcasing via Podcast, Website and Newsletter promotes intergenerational mentoring and cultural diversity.
