Barrios amigos

Project's objective

Avoidance of unwanted loneliness and social isolation

Project's description

The programme, which functions as a social network, enables one or more neighbours to contact an older adult close to their home. The aim is to share simple, everyday moments: going out for a drink in the neighbourhood, going for a walk, getting bread, watering the plants, phoning each other, writing to each other by WhatsApp, sending postcards, going to the theatre or the cinema, etc.

Responsible entities

Asociación Amigos de los Mayores (Association of Friends of the Older Adults; founded in 1987)
