Nong Plalai’s oldest residents were advised how to protect their health and finances at a sub district-organized workshop for the elderly.
Deputy Mayor Lae Boonsang opened the March 8 talk for 80 Nong Plalai residents 80 or more years old. The seminar is part of Nong Plalai’s Elderly in the Community project launched to address the growing numbers of older people in society.
Staffers from the Ban Banglamung Social Welfare Development Center brought in lecturers from the Ban Rong Po and Nong Huarad health-promotion hospitals to teach the seniors how to protect themselves and their health.
The sub-district’s program aims to address five areas in which senior citizens may be challenged: health, society, economy, environment and technology.
