Projects under Mixed Welfare Home
Ti-Ratana is a mixed home. In year 2016, needs analysis was done prior to the implementation of the project on 12 March 2016 (first visit). It was found that there is no one to assist the elderly population in massaging them whenever they felt ache all over the body. It was specifically requested by the elderly population to have some demonstration on massage. The care takers were also involved during the visit with hands-on training.
