Yes I Can Foundation felicitated ‘caregivers’ – workers working for elderly people living in old age home.
“Caregiver’s kindness can transform someone’s dark moment with a blaze of light. You’ll never know how much your caring matter. Make a difference for another today.” ― Amy Leigh Mercree.
Caregiver is a person who provides direct care to senior citizens, chronically ill, for children.
It is important to recognize their efforts and appreciate their work towards disadvantaged people.
Yes I Can Foundation felicitated caregivers in Mumbai- an old age home ‘ special care unit ‘ who looks after senior citizens.
Residents in the old age home appreciated their caregivers and caregivers too shared their bonding experiences with old age home residents.
One of the caregiver celebrated her birthday and Yes I Can Foundation offered her appreciation reward on this memorable occasion.
