Have a coffee and help the elderly out of loneliness!
Have a coffee and help the elderly out of loneliness "I'm happy several days after the meeting! That there are such kind people who stand up for us old people. Thank you please, lucky that you exist!" The words come from one of Äldrekontakt's about 400 older guests who we help to meet other peers in the same situation every month. Our volunteer hosts open up their homes and offer coffee, while others drive them to coffee and then home again. In this way, our older guests get help to meet each other once a month for as long as they want and can join - at no cost to them. SEK 200 ensures that a group of 6-8 older guests will have the opportunity to meet over a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy pastries in each other's happy company. Your contribution makes many older people much happier and less lonely!
Phone meetings - for the lonely who are unable to leave their home
For a single, elderly person, a phone call can be the biggest thing that happens in several weeks. Elderly contact gives single elderly people who are no longer able to leave their homes the opportunity to make new contacts with others in the same situation, through group conversations on the phone. Every other week, we offer talks that revolve around different themes. Our themes give the ten participants a common point of contact so that there is then something to talk about that everyone knows as much about. The conversations not only stimulate and enrich, they also build a community - even if you do not meet. As one of our participants said: "Imagine that the development has gone so far that we can sit at home on each other's sofa and still be together." Participants register in advance for the topics they are interested in. Elderly contact calls everyone and covers all costs. This autumn, we will conduct at least six telephone lectures and thereby help up to 60 single elderly people to make new contacts and friendships. Help the elderly who have no other way to continue to meet on the air during the autumn of 2018. Do you want to know more? Visit www.telefontraffar.se
