Senior

The Committee of Good Will – Olga Havel Foundation has been in the long run supporting civic associations and charity institutions which provide opportunities for active lifestyle to the elderly and enable decent life for those who cannot take care of themselves.

The Senior programme aims to support quality projects, which make life easier to the elderly living in homes for seniors. This is mainly about facilities for people with Alzheimer, dementia, and other neurological disorders, and for seniors in social care centres and hospices.   

Partner of the programme is the Kocián Šolc Balaštík law office.

Deadlines for applications - February 26 and September 20, 2017.

The programme's priority for spring 2017 is to support training of employees in facilities for the elderly and to support innovative projects. The programme's priority for autumn 2017 is purchase of equipment in facilities that care for seniors.
