We are improving their quality of Life...
We are determined to safeguard the
rights of our elderly.
The rapid ageing of the population in Cyprus is revealing the substantial problems the people of the Third Age are facing. Ageism, open intergenerational conflict, abandonment, maltreatment, neglect and abuse of the elderly should leave no one unconcerned. The ignorance of our society of the problems and bad quality of life of our elderly people and the people with Dementia/Alzheimer, is so big that virtually a handful of people are interested in giving them hope and a better quality of life.
Therefore, we all need to support actions and practices that will improve the quality of life of our senior citizens and eradicate behaviours that bring them on the edge of physical and psychological collapse. It is our responsibility to support the people of the Third Age who have been left helpless, without modern and anthropocentric national strategies while other countries have made a significant progress towards this direction.
Your support will allow us to provide a better quality of life to thousands of people, by implementing specific programs and good practices, either by their incorporation to current
but outdated national strategies or by designing new ones. It will enable us to intervene dynamically so that our State and society accepts that old age is a natural life process and that the elderly must enjoy the same human rights as the rest of us.
Moreover, your support will enable us to develop Counselling and Memory Enhancement Centres throughout Cyprus, to make our elderly people active citizens again, to support healthy ageing and to provide psychological support to people suffering from Alzheimer's disease as well as their families and friends.
We are inviting you in becoming a part of our vision, embracing the people of the Third Age. After all, “The level of the quality of life of the elderly demonstrates the cultural level of each country!”.
