October 1st is observed as ‘International Elder’s Day’ and it is celebrated all through the month.

Department of Prosthodontics has MOU with Mathruchaya Trust which runs a old age home with 60 inmates.

It was decided to celebrate ‘International Elder’s Day’, so the Department of Prosthodontics organized ‘Free Dental Screening and Treatment Camp’ at Mathruchaya old age home on 28th October 2021.

We reached the serene premises of the old age home around 10AM. The programme was graced by the presence of Dr.Rajkumar.S. Alle, Principal, RRDCH, Dr.Padma k Bhat ,Head of Public Health Dentistry , Dr.Shwetha Poovani , Head of Prosthodontics Department and Mr. Krishna Murthy, Director of Mathruchaya Trust.

We commenced the programme with an invocation song by our House Surgeon. The staff, postgraduates and interns took active participation in educating and creating awareness amongst the elderly through a stage show regarding the importance of maintaining remaining teeth and replacement of missing teeth. A health talk was given to the elderly by Dr.Manova on significance of maintaining oral health, followed by diet and nutritional counseling by Dr.Rachana. Dr.Priya demonstrated sitting exercises which will help to keep them active physically and mentally. The inmates enjoyed by taking active participation.Psychological counseling targeting the elderly was done by Dr.vijayantha .

Dr.Padma K Bhat demonstrated sitting surya namaskara to the elderly which was very much appreciated by the elders.
Screening of around 30 inmates was done, around 10 bed ridden inmates were examined in their respective cottages.

Treatment options were explained to each inmate after proper diagnosis.

They were asked to visit the hospital for further treatment, where we decided to treat them with zero waiting period with free off cost and minimal visits at Department of Prosthodontics (No-2), Rajarajeswari Dental College and Hospital.

Elderly also appreciated the efforts of young doctors for providing the information and solving their queries regarding general and oral health

Lunch was provided by the trustees to all the doctors. It was a fruitful day for the staff, PG’s and interns as they were successful in spreading awareness about the need for health provisions and social care for the elderly.
