Title: Seniors without borders. Visegrad cooperation for the integration of seniors

ID number: 21810162

Source and amount of funding: International Visegrad Fund, € 15,000.00

Project description: the project is based on the external support for institutions providing care for the elderly people – Nurses Home/Homes of Old Age from the border areas of Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia. It will include a series of outgoing, integrative, therapy workshops for seniors and their carers. Another planned activity are trainings  in the methods of working with seniors who are struggling with dementia. These trainings are directed to medical and natural caregivers (families), nurses, occupational therapists and managers from Nurses Home. The project is supposed to indirectly counteract the social exclusion of older people, and the motive for these actions are social phenomena: the aging of society, life expectancy, the loss of the authority of older people and the break-up of traditional, intergenerational families.
