One of the basic psychological problems the elderly face is loneliness. The Active Ageing Centre is designed to meet this and other needs and challenges which elderly grapple. The services provided in the Centre will represent a community resource for improving the quality of life pertaining to psychological, medical and material aspects, through integrative and personalized approach towards specific problems, such as social isolation, marginalization, decreased life expectancy and damaged self-image.
Thanks to this project, the elderly will enjoy a 500 sq. m. area for socializing activities conducted in a properly equipped ”seniors’ club”. They will have the possibility to relax, rehabilitate and practice fitness activities. Access to medical physiotherapy and kinesthetic services, to information and training sessions will be of particular importance for the beneficiaries. The senior volunteering component launched within the Centre will be aimed at fostering intergenerational dialogue and sharing of experience.
