Confederation of Senior Citizens Associations of Delhi

The World Elder Abuse Awareness Day was officially recognized by the United Nations General Assembly in December 2011. Confederation of Senior Citizens Associations of Delhi has been taking up various concerned issues with Govt. of India and Delhi Govt. Due to Covid-19 pandemic. This year we will not be able to join Candle March at Jantar Mantar like past years. Around 1 in 6 older people experience some form of abuse, a figure higher than previously estimated.

J.R. Gupta, Chairperson through Webinar advised senior citizens particularly lonely to approach District Magistrate Court on a simple paper, if their son/daughter-in-law residing with them are not taking care of them and neglecting or abusing them to evict them from their own house. He further advised not to transfer their properties in the name of their children during lifetime and rather execute a will on a plain paper with 2 witnesses out of 1 should be of younger age so that their children would take care of them till the end of their life. Even, maintenance allowance can be claimed in such cases which is at present  Rs.10,000/- per month. The print and electronic media has a vital role to sensitise younger generations to respect their parents/grandparents. 

2. The World Environment Day theme for this year is 'Biodiversity' which, considering the havoc of 2020 seems all the more pertinent to this year. There have been several reports regarding re-appearance of avian species that had disappeared for several years due to the harshness of air and noise pollution. Their euphonious chirpings are back in town. We need to understand that while there may be a food chain and ranking of species, every living thing is connected to another living thing, and together it forms a network of diverse life forms on the planet. Tree plantation in cities like Delhi where there is practically no space for tree plantation, going vertically is the only way possible. Vertical gardens are also great benefactors of cleaning contaminated air and reducing the carbon print caused by vehicular fuel emissions. One of its unique advantages is that it plummets noise pollution by creating soundproof environments. Moreover, it also boosts mental health for city dwellers and are also cheap to grow and maintain. All senior citizens affiliated are advised to plant more and more trees as and where space is available to keep green & clean Delhi.

3.   Chairperson along with V.K.Pahuja have handed over 79 cheques worth Rs.3.45 Lakhs to the P M Cares Fund  to Sri. Satpal Singh in PMO office on 15-06-2020. The donors include 49 members of SCWA  Lajpat Nagar, phases I & II headed by its President R . P. Kapoor, 20 members of SCWM Tagore Garden headed by its President R.K.Katyal, and 10 members of Senior Citizens Council of Delhi, headed by its President , J.R. Gupta.

An Advisory to the Seniors

It is on record of the Union Social Justice and Empowerment Ministry that India has 16 crore senior citizens, who were more vulnerable when it came to COVID-19. Hence it was felt that it was important that a list of precautions to help elders to mitigate the risk of contracting the virus be compiled.

First and foremost is ensuring to have proper nutrition through home-cooked fresh hot meals, hydrating frequently and taking fresh juices to boost immunity. Exercise and meditation is an added bonus. It is imperative that senior citizens need to increase their consumption of Vitamin C. This can be found in amla, citrus fruits, and supplements, among others. Experts inform that consuming more organic products, like Apples, that have a diverse bacteria population would also help in boosting immunity.

Senior citizens need to get their daily dose of Vitamin D by spending time under the sun, while also socially distancing themselves. Seniors with pre-existing medical conditions, especially heart disease, lung disease, diabetes or cancer are more likely to have severe coronavirus infection than other age groups. Further, they need to make sure they get enough sleep and keep monitoring blood glucose levels in case of diabetics. Eating meals on time and taking prescribed medicines on time and remaining calm will help to protect themselves. They must avoid being around their children and grandchildren if things get worse. Hand hygiene and social distancing are important to reduce the risk of exposure for senior citizens. Though appears to be a cruel thought, it is now immediate and urgent that senior citizens need to be both selfish and self-centered and maintain social distancing with own family members and relatives living outside their homes. Further I personally recommend that Senior Citizens should avoid crowds. However, one must also be cautious of misinformation that is rampant in the wake of social media and instant messaging services.

It is now embedded within every person that they need to wash hands frequently with soap and water for, at least 20 seconds before and after preparing food, using the bathroom, or touching surfaces in public places. Carrying a small bottle of hand sanitizer while going out for essential work is a must to do in today’s society. The same applies to seniors too. In case of a cough or sneeze, doing it into the bend of elbow or into a disposable tissue is a good habit. It is also recommended to keep hands and fingers away from face, nose, ears and eyes. In case of any irritation in such body parts, using a clean cloth or ear bud is an easy way to protect themselves. In cases of Seniors who have no problem with their mobility at homes, they could develop a habit of cleaning frequently touched surfaces often, including mobility and medical equipment used by them such as walkers, canes and handrails. Any non-acid containing disinfectant could do. Practicing social and physical distancing need not be misunderstood for social isolation or loneliness. It is very essential to keep older adults safe, but also keep in mind that social isolation can have a negative impact on older people’s  immunity and mental health, which can be compensated by learning to use phones for Video Calls or WhatsApp chatting or watching knowledge or religion based TV shows.

Senior Citizens need to redesign their life style during current problem by limiting their interactions via in-person visits. In terms of social contacts, seniors should be encouraged to think beyond their usual circle of friends and family. With many houses of worship opening their doors, the natural habit of visiting them often can be kept in hibernation for some more time. Instead Seniors can seek solace by watching LIVE programs on many Religious TV Channels for spiritual comfort and support. It is not a difficult task for elders to learn to use Apps on their mobile phones to spend quality time. Another aspect for spending time within four walls could be reviving the long forgotten habit of writing letters or diaries or sending postcards to near ones or old friends which will lift the spirits.

It was a happy moment for me to learn that some Seniors are spending their time by going through and organizing old photos and memorabilia together, and enjoying the stories and happy memories of the past. It can be a good time for an elder to demonstrate his cooking a favorite family recipe, or share favorite songs or movies with other people in the household.

If you are feeling well, please consider postponing any non-urgent medical procedures, annual checkups and other non-essential doctor visits. Seniors, especially those living with chronic illness, should continue to have their regular checkups with all precautions taken. They need to ask their Doctors to communicate over video, email or other means rather than face-to-face, in case of any problem. Further stocking up one to three months of medications, and at least two weeks’ worth of food, over-the-counter medicines and other essentials could help reducing your visits outside your homes. Keeping a record of food and medicine delivery services of your area is very helpful in times of need. They should keep emergency contact numbers in a visible/prominent area of the house and designating someone nearby whom a Senior can rely on to take care in emergencies is a must in these times. Needless to say but avoiding travel is a must especially non-essential travel, such as family trips or relative visits or marriages or parties that would expose them to crowds. 

Following all or some of the above could be helpful for our senior citizens to remain healthy in these trying times of CORONA type of infections.
