I love to join this course.i wish to help oldery people who need some physical therapy and mental, emotional support. After certain age people are alone. No support for their daily activities. Other families members are busy their chorus. Even no time to think about old people mental need. Alone and physical inactive Ness gave lot of stress to them. It leads to depression. If I get knowledge of care givers from your system educate myself, for whom can I help. Thanking you.
