This school lasts for 12 weeks with a curriculum designed to suit the needs of the elderly, namely health and physical performance checks, blood sugar and blood pressure checks, simple medication, health consultations, health education, sports programs for musculoskeletal balance and flexibility, and skills. The skills practiced are making aromatherapy candles, making bento rice, and practicing worship.
