Seniors are no longer alone!
"Visit-a-Senior": a project developed by HESTIA, the Belgian Red Cross activity that aims at overcoming isolation and loneliness at home
Since January 2015, the private foundation be.Source financially supports "Visit-a-Senior" in the Brussels-Capital Region.
The purpose of the partnership is to help improve the social and relational well-being of isolated persons at home, most of them seniors, and thus reducing their feeling of loneliness.
After training at the Belgian Red Cross, volunteers spend one to two hours a week at the home of persons suffering from solitude. They provide them with company while sharing their leisure activities, exchanging ideas in a convivial atmosphere, recalling memories, going for a walk or simply sharing a cup of coffee.
