Description of the organization

We operate mainly in the field of social protection, in the network of assistance for older people who are at risk of social exclusion or need support and assistance in everyday life. We run intergenerational center programs, dementia programs, and other gerontology programs.
We are also focused on the implementation of social protection programs intended for intergenerational cooperation and programs in the field of dementia. We operate locally, also at the homes of ours users.
