Projects and programmes addressing underlying differences in health with some health involvement
This programme provides support services to older people living at home in Greece, enabling them to care for themselves with the help of their family and social environment and to prevent social exclusion. Older people can therefore avoid having to go into institutionalised care services, which can have a negative impact on their psychological and physical well-being. Priority is given to older people who are dependent, live alone and have a low income. The project was designed by the Ministry of Health and Welfare and is supported through the European Social Funds.
