Manipal Hospitals Kolkata and BSCWA Organised Transformative Senior Citizen Welfare Programme
News Desk, News Nation 360 : Manipal Hospitals, Kolkata, in cooperation with the Barasat Senior Citizen Welfare Association (BSCWA), launched a transformative senior citizen welfare programme. Around 230 elderly individuals took part in the programme. It was supervised by Dr Kaushik Chandra Malik, Consultant Urologist, Manipal Hospitals, Salt Lake, Kolkata. For the kidneys, it is Inflammation
or swelling that is a common ailment. Kidney problems can lead to other health conditions such as cardiovascular issues. Early detection of kidney-related issues not only increases the life of the kidneys but also reduces the risk of falling prey to other diseases. Dr Kaushik Chandra Malik at the event said that they strive to create a nurturing environment that promotes the well-being and happiness of senior citizens through a variety of services, including healthcare assistance and social engagement activities. Their dedicated team of professionals is committed to addressing the needs of senior citizens, ensuring they receive the respect, care, and attention they deserve. As they grow old, health issues could surface. Two organs that are affected in a large number of people are the bladder and the kidneys. Among the common health issues related to the bladder is leakage or urinary incontinence (not being able to hold one’s urine), urinary retention (not being able to completely empty the bladder), and urinary tract infections (UTIs). Kidney diseases do not always show early warning signs. Therefore, an informative workshop is helpful for people to understand the signs of kidney-related diseases. The program provided a platform for experts to speak on the urological issues faced by senior citizens, and offer their guidance and expertise in tackling these health issues.
