ALGETELLAMA (Algete Calls You)
Avoidance unwanted loneliness and social isolation of older adults. Encourage intergenerational solidarity.
It is a programme initiated to combat the effects of the isolation generated by the pandemic; the City Council, through the “Miguel de Cervantes” municipal library, is looking for people who agree to telephone older adults who request it, to talk to them and read them poems or short texts. The initiative is complemented by a home book lending service and help for older adults to use electronic books.
