About

The project partnership recognized the fast aging society as a serious demographic threat in the cross-border area which cannot be addressed due to insufficient institutional capacities and low accessibility of social care for elderlies. Decreased mobility, loneliness, dependency, low socio-economic status and poor health leaves elderlies almost invisible in a society that has no adequate answer. We CARE aims to improve the quality and accessibility of health and social care services for elderlies in the cross-border area of Central Croatia, Northern Bosnia and Herzegovina and Southern Montenegro. The project approach combines social inclusion and deinstitualization of social care activities to deal directly with elderlies and mobilize their physical and intellectual capacities according to their needs, interests and the well-fare of the community. Among several project outputs, elderly day centres and home care teams will be established to ensure that no elderlies are left behind, especially in rural and remote areas.
