Publication date: 01/03/2018
The passing of years causes a person to face a series of changes regarding their affections, relationships, role in life, and physical abilities, for which it is necessary to renegotiate new meanings and find new balances to safeguard the continuation of one’s self and his/her personal story. Having the precious opportunity to stop and listen to one’s own feelings and emotions is very important for facing this challenge. Elderly Emotional Wellbeing Program presents a complete group program, structured and clear, with precise indications for the worker and is accompanied by cards, which allows the elderly person to:
– explore the world of one’s emotions in a fun and exciting way;
–recognize, think, talk about, and share one’s feelings;
– retrace one’s own history, listen and welcome the experiences of others;
– re-experience states of freedom, well-being and vitality.
The proposed activities are useful for a variety of professionals in different contexts (nursing homes, retirement homes, day centres) and, with the correct adjustments, even with people affected by cognitive impairment.
