Due to demographic change and individualisation in our society more and more older people are living alone or in nursing homes, often without any relatives or relatives that live far away. Older people in particular benefit from local non-family networks with friends and neighbours. These enable sociability and promote a sense of belonging. Many studies confirm that older people with positive relationships feel better and are healthier.
Dreamlike Neighbourhood facilitates neighbourhood groups, where older people meet regularly and support each other in (re-)detecting and bringing in their talents, fulfilling their dreams, facing challenges of everyday life and finding ways to actively contribute to their communities.
In this video about the Neighbourhood Group in Vienna, our participants tell about great encounters and lots of fun at the „Plauderei“ („chat”).
