On 10th April 2008 a new movement for Senior Citizens Silver Innings was started. It has been 2 years of our honest and dedicated work for our Elderly.
To celebrate this historic occasion on 9th April 2010, eve of Silver Innings Foundation day, we had organized Half a day FREE EYE & CATRACT CHECK UP/OPERATION CAMP for Senior Citizens (above 50 yrs) only. The camp was held from 10am to 1pm Near Tapobhoomi Mandir, opp. Post Office, Near Railway Station, Mira Road , Near Mumbai , India.
This camp was organized by Silver Innings Active Ageing Center in association with Help Age India & Bhaktivedanta Hospital Share Your Care project. Event Management was done by Silver Inning Foundation & Mr. Mahesh Machhi of Shree Bapa Sita Ram Seva Mandal, Mira Bhayandar.
On camp day 120 Elderly (52 Elderly women and 68 Elderly Men) underwent Eye checkup and 20 people were diagnosed of cataract problem. Elderly with cataract will be operated Free of cost on 14th April 2010 at Bhaktivedanta Hospital, Mira Road. Around 70 Elderly were also assisted with Vision checkup.
10 Volunteers from Silver Inning Foundation, Help Age India, Bhaktivedanta Hospital and Shree Bapa Sita Ram Seva Mandal, Mira Bhayandar made this programme successful.

Preliminary Data Report For Lifeline Community Care Queensland’s World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) 2010 Elder Abuse Awareness Campaign
Queensland, Australia - September 2010
This report provides cursory description and analysis of data arising from an elder abuse awareness campaign conducted by Lifeline Community Care Queensland’s Elder Abuse Prevention Unit (EAPU) and the Queensland Department of Communities for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) 2010. The statistics and charts contained in this report have been checked for accuracy and can be used with confidence.
It is the intention of Lifeline’s EAPU to provide a full research paper based on the WEAAD 2010 campaign to explore the best methods of undertaking an awareness campaign for elder abuse. This future paper will provide greater detail including a gender analysis. This WEAAD 2010 campaign was based on research undertaken by the EAPU in 2009 to design and make predictions about the best method of raising awareness about elder abuse. With the assistance of Lifeline’s Communications and Fundraising section the “Is it Happening to Someone you Know” awareness campaign was subsequently developed.

The common experience of how close relatives, whilst in hospital, had
not been treated with respect and, as a result, lost their dignity led a group of individuals to establish A Dignified Revolution in January 2008.
A Dignified Revolution aims to
ensure that older people are cared for with dignity and respect in
hospital. We do this by raising awareness of dignity and respect
issues to health professionals and to the general public.
Following are forthcoming training workshops:
