The 1st of October was the International Day of Older Persons. In conjunction with the event, MWASA organised a scenic cruise along the Torrens River on the Popeye for CHSP* seniors.
Proper social distancing and precautionary measures were adhered to throughout the activity. The seniors were assisted by the friendly guide and advised to sanitize prior to taking their seats on the boat. The cruise trip lasted for approximately 45 minutes. The seniors had a wonderful and joyful time cruising down the river while enjoying each other’s company.
After the cruise trip, the seniors enjoyed a leisure walk along the Torrens River up to the gazebo at the Elder Park. They had light snacks while basking in the sun.
They also did some stretching to improve their flexibility and ease the movement of their joints. The seniors felt really good after the light exercise, resulting in a positive mindset and relaxed body.
The seniors thoroughly enjoyed the activity and had a wonderful time with great company on that beautiful day!
