The project Volunteers in Households of seniors is concentrated on lonely elderly people in Frydek-Mistek. The volunteers are the people, who are carefully selected and trained to give support to seniors. The main aims are psychological support, activation and possible risk prevention that all go hand in hand with old age (the changes in the psyche, in the physical self-sufficiency, the loss of contact with the surroundings, the cases of burglaries and robberiesof seniors, as well as any unwanted offers of service etc.) In this project we want to provide voluntary companions for about 10 seniors, who will be recommended for the service by the social workers from particular local authorities.
