Sentinels / Giving the good back to our old people


Along the last 50 years, our village located in the Italian Alps lost 75% of residents, jobs and essential services. Most of the remaining residents are old people, many live alone or have often to assist their disabled partners. Covid19 made situation even worse. Together with the public health services, we assessed their needs and then launched a monitoring program intended to pinpoint distress situations and to prevent serious medical and psychological cases via unconventional methodologies, such as involving the elderly in physical and mental activities, encouraging interaction with teenagers and making them feel useful again.
