DOBARA Cares : For effortless labour of love
Caregiving for elderly, disabled and post-surgery patients is a herculean task. Post-pandemic, the necessity for caregiving has intensified, its impact on life and work has increased, and so has the need for qualified caregivers. For this reason, ‘Dobara Cares’, an initiative by non-government organisation Dobara, has organised a 90-hour certified caregiving course starting next week.
DOBARA is all about happiness and celebrating advancing years
Being over 60 isn’t a prerequisite to joining DOBARA. In fact, DOBARA actively encourages younger members. Fostering intergenerational relationships is a goal listed in DOBARA’s manifesto.
Young and old walk through history
The streets of Charminar saw a number of enthusiastic people take part in the Inter-generational Walk where juniors (below 50) and seniors (above 50) participated. The main idea was to get the two generations together through history.

“DOBARA has been constantly growing and adapting to create a platform for members to build a community, find a hobby, develop a passion or help someone with their skill set to enjoy longevity following the concepts of ikigai, neuroscience and gerontology,” says Mateen, adding that this process encourages seniors to thrive post retirement and “continue to be assets who give back to society”.
The goal of DOBARA is to facilitate senior well-being.
DOBARA, a non-profit organisation for the elderly conducted a six-week caregiver training program at the Udai Omni Hospital.
