With over 105 years of history, ”la Caixa” Foundation's programme for the elderly aims to continue supporting older people as they age, helped by their commitment and effective participation to improve their well-being and contribute to the good of society as a whole.
We're fully aware of the valuable contribution older people can make to our society and want to provide resources that enhance their skills. To this end, we aim to be close to older people, maximising their opportunities for personal growth, providing a supportive network so they can live a full life and engage with their community and helping them to enjoy old age as a time of personal growth and development.
We also want to support the elderly when they become more vulnerable and consequently require more extensive help and assistance. We therefore help to address situations of loneliness by empowering people, fostering a closer relationship with those around them, building a network in the community and raising awareness in society at large. We also help to address physical frailty through prevention and actions to reduce the risk of older people losing their functional abilities, as well as creating support networks at centres for the elderly.
