Engagement and Purpose

Ageism and outdated social norms have led to the exclusion and alienation of older persons in both urban and rural contexts. For the well-being of older persons as well as the well-being of our communities, it is essential to support their meaningful engagement.


It is necessary to find novel and imaginative ways to involve people of all ages in meaningful learning opportunities as well as to draw on their wisdom.

Issues and Challenges

  • Social Isolation and Marginalization
  • Reduced Fluid Intelligence
  • Losing sense of meaning and purpose
  • Empty Nest Syndrome
  • Past Regrets
  • Disease or Disability

Advice

Join a group. List a few topics that you or a loved one might be interested in. Find a book club to join if you or a loved one is a voracious reader. Find clubs if gardening or woodworking are your hobbies. Seniors are likely to develop connections through meeting up with people who have similar interests.

Play puzzles and word games. Elders can keep their minds engaged while maintaining social connections by playing intellectually demanding activities with others. Play some games like checkers or chess. Join a bridge group or play poker.

Find a side job or volunteer your time. Try volunteering for a cause that means something to you if there aren't many clubs you'd like to join. Work as a shelter volunteer if you enjoy animals. If you're concerned about children's literacy, consider giving them reading lessons. Engagement is crucially dependent on giving back and maintaining involvement.

Frequently visit friends and family. One of the finest things you can do to keep socially active is to maintain your close personal ties. Decide on specific times to spend with friends and family.

Sunday breakfast with your children might become a custom. Join the men for some golf or poker. Make it a habit to see friends and relatives as frequently as you can, and then do the same with new people you meet as a result of your increased socializing.

How Online Counselling can be helpful?

Individuals who are housebound or disabled can obtain online counselling. Mobility can be a significant issue when it comes to receiving mental health care. For instance, a therapist working from home might not be equipped to serve people of all capacities. But they help to overcome emotional and psychological issues.

Online therapy can be a helpful substitute for typical in-person psychotherapy settings for those who are unable to leave their homes due to a variety of conditions, such as physical or mental sickness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ageotypes, are defined as individuals ageing at various speeds and presumably by diverse biological causes. It was noted that the body ages naturally. But in a given person, certain systems age more quickly or more slowly than others.

Not everyone's ageing process is the same but the process can be improved and enhanced with the help of geriatric counselling.
Three things are necessary for efficient ageing: resilience (the capacity to adjust and endure in the face of difficulty), optimism (the capacity to see both the good and the bad in a situation), and the lack of depression.

These three things can be worked upon with the help of a geriatric counsellor and the best family therapist.
Although obstacles to good ageing might undoubtedly vary from person to person, some universal issues tend to impair the elderly and their ability to enjoy this new stage of life. These consist of mobility and exercise: As we get older, our opportunities for exercise can suddenly decrease.

These obstacles can be easily worked upon with the help of a geriatric counsellor and the best family therapist.
