Seniors! Back to School: Thailand
In just 20 years, Thailand's senior population has doubled in size. Many seniors find themselves isolated at home, while others suffer from stress, depression and other mental health issues. One new initiative is looking to prevent age-related issues and encourage social integration: Schools for seniors, aimed at those over sixty. Classes cover social media, fraud awareness and practical career training. Explore how "senior school" has given many isolated elderly people a new lease on life.
