Old age is an infinite source of richness

At be.Source, we are convinced that old age is an infinite source of richness.
This is why we are striving to change the way society views the elderly. We are also
convinced that elderly people in difficulty should not be left to their fate.
For this reason, we believe that all actions that help them should be supported.

IN FIGURES

By 2050, over 30% of our population will be aged 65 or more (WHO, World Report on Ageing and Health 2015).
The ageing of our population, in combination with the risk of poverty and social exclusion, is a major challenge today, and will be even more so for future generations. That is why the support of actions aimed at improving the living conditions of vulnerable senior citizens is a key priority for be.Source.

THE CARAVAN

"we come near you"

Following its success in Forest, the caravan comes back the last week of August in Saint-Gilles to meet isolated and vulnerable people in their environment.

The caravan aims to create a friendly and mobile space, where seniors can stop for a coffee and discuss with associations the problems they encounter in terms of housing, care, solitude or other issues.

Everyone will be able to meet and exchange ideas in a warm atmosphere aimed at raising awareness of the problem of isolation among the elderly.

Will the caravan be coming to your area soon?

  • 26 to 30/8 > Square Jacques Franck, St-Gilles
  • 09 to 13/9 > Place Jef Mennekens, Molenbeek
  • 30/9 to 4/10 > Danco Square, Uccle
