The elderly demonstrated a positive attitude towards life and aging that really moved me. They all tried to be really enthusiastic in terms of participation and held a keen interest throughout the activities that we had planned for them. For instance, during the origami session, the elderly were eagerly asking questions and trying to do the folding for themselves despite impaired motor movements. Upon interaction with a few of the old folk, I also learnt about how these elderly try their best to make it a point to come down to the center everyday to exercise and keep their minds and body actively fit. I feel that this reflects a proactive quality about the elderly which really left a deep impression on me.

The elderly at the centre were really enthusiastic in taking part in the activities that we had planned out for them. All of them made an effort to follow us in doing the wushu, and some even volunteered to lead the wushu session together with us. Though the wushu session ended much earlier than expected, we managed to adapt by adding in a sing-along session. During the origami session, the elderly were all very keen in learning from us, and i think they really appreciated our presence, even though some of us had difficulty communicating with them due to language barriers. It was really heart warming to see how much they enjoyed themselves, and I think that we should pay more attention to the elderly, because all they really need is a little attention from us.
