Loneliness amongst elderly is an enormous problem. Every other day an elderly person commits suicide in Finland and over 300,000 Finnish elderly persons spend Christmas alone. Instead of mailing any Season’s Greetings, we wanted to give our support to elderly people and, as an added benefit, a youngster gets employed.
We have given the gift of companionship and weekly help to a lonely elderly person for the entire year of 2022. The mission is to reduce loneliness amongst the elderly and to help them to live happier, longer and healthier. At the same time, a young person receives valuable part-time work for one year as the companion.
We wish you all a happy 2022!
