Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions on social gatherings, ILC-I has been working through online mode since April 2020. ILC-I’s “Happy Hours Café” includes creative learning which enhance memory, attention & concentration among senior participants.

ILC-I’s Happy Hours Café is a programme where seniors get a chance to learn new, challenging skills in an infotainment i.e. informative and entertaining way.

ILC-I’s Happy Hours Café was not only a treat for seniors but also to their grandchildren.

As the programme was online and especially focussed on creative sessions like Origami and Brain games, grandchildren of a few of the participants also attended the sessions. Seniors loved learning the basics of languages-Sanskrit and  n. After receiving positive response from the participants, we have now announced to conduct brain games and walking variation sessions at national level starting from October 2021.

The following table explains the skills learnt by the seniors under expert supervision over eight different sessions.

Resource person Broad theme Targeted abilities
Dr. Tejswi Kamble Brain games and walking variations memory, concentration, attention, visuospatial abilities and techniques to improve gait.
