Worldwide, the number of people 65 or older is increasing faster than ever.
We believe that everyone has the right to a quality of life as they grow older, irrespective of their gender, race, health or economic status. Elderly people deserve to live with dignity, free from the perverse effects of poverty, illness, homelessness and malnutrition; and deserve protection from isolation, abuse, neglect and discrimination.
This group is often marginalised in Romania as there is no state provision in place for the development of much needed services, and currently insufficient empowerment or self-representation of older generations. This situation is equally inadequate for seniors living in both urban and rural areas with a lack of services and general poverty affecting many people.
What we’re doing to help:
We help provide home care services for homebound, lonely and suffering elderly people at their own homes. These services support the poorest who otherwise could not afford care. For those who can’t rely on the help of a family, these services are essential.
Our qualified home carers provide support with personal hygiene, nutrition, cooking, cleaning, shopping and paying bills.
People will receive counselling, advocacy, financial support, cleaning and sanitary materials.
A mobile service provided by qualified nurses, this service is continuos and assures medical interventions based on the indications from specialist doctors.
We encourage the growth of these services by training others to spread this care to other regions so that those suffering temporary, chronic or terminal illness will not do it alone.
