Welcome to DOBARA - The Hub for Senior Well-being, Socialization, Bonding, Sharing, Caring, and More!
DOBARA is an equitable age-friendly Wellbeing platform where we consistently promote Healthy & Active ageing and overall Wellbeing through our wide variety of programs, events and activities. Our main areas of focus revolve around physical, social, cognitive, mental and emotional wellbeing.
It has been widely researched that the overall health of older adults can be greatly improved and preserved through Healthy & Active Ageing Programs such as the ones created by DOBARA.
Our work revolves around nurturing safe spaces for creative and artistic expression, promoting lifelong learning, giving back and finding purpose through volunteering and creating diverse, intergenerational environments through age-friendly and accessible activities.
We invite everyone who joins DOBARA to actively participate and collaborate - because together we form a Silver Reservoir of rich and diverse ideas and thoughts.
We genuinely feel that now is the time that through intergenerational collaborations and active participation, we can truly Re-imagine and Re-define the Experience of Ageing together.
Over the past 8 years DOBARA has made strides in laying the foundations for and building a vibrant Wellbeing Community. Through the pandemic, we adapted and moved to a Virtual Wellbeing format. Now we are back with a bang and with some new changes in place to help us achieve our goals and visions for our organisation.
