The Pampilhosa da Serra municipality has witnessed the desertification of its territory, with a marked geographical dispersion and half of its inhabitants being 60 years old or more. The “100 Idade” project aims to bring life to isolated older people, promoting mobility, but also social and cultural activities to combat isolation. The ultimate goal is to promote active ageing and give life to the community in this region.
This is an innovation and social entrepreneurship initiative (IIES).
The “100 Idade” has two axes of intervention:
Axis 1 – Physical well-being and mobility
Axis 2 – Emotional, Occupational, Social and Cultural Welfare
Within each Axis various activities are developed.
• Decrease in social isolation;
• Decreased dependence and assistance from other caregivers;
• Delay the moment of residential institutionalization;
• Decrease in the number of falls and personal health expenses;
• Bringing generations closer together;
• Increase in digital literacy through ICT;
• Increase in the number of contacts within the personal and social network of the elderly;
• Quantitative improvement in physical and social well-being.
