A lot of times lack of communication with peers, friends and relatives can escalate your depression. You feel lonely and unwanted. You hardly want to get out of bed and out of the house. You isolate yourself... Wouldn’t it be great if there was a place where you can go on a rainy or a "sad" day, where you are surrounded by peers and friends, where hot meals are served and music and games surrounds you all day long. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a place where you can reconnect with old and make new friends, where you can refresh old and gain new skills?

Sometimes we don’t think about problems that we have because of our busy lifestyle, and then, later on in life we blame it on our age... Not that we want to get older... We do day-to-day activities despite pain, dizziness, shortness of breath, diaphoresis because we know that no one will do it for us. We continue walking, in spite the pain in the joints, it takes us more time to get dressed in the morning or to take a shower, but we are still doing, pushing through pain and discomfort because we don’t have other choices. We may attribute it to our age and not pay a lot of attention to pain because we live with it every day. But just because we are used to pain it does not mean that we have to live and suffer from it day to day basis. In reality, you don't have to live and suffer any longer.
