caring connection

The Caring Connection project is aimed at socializing older people.
The goal of the project is to improve the quality of life, introduce clients to the traditions and culture of the Jewish people, and create opportunities for clients to communicate with family and friends around the world.

 As part of the project, each participant receives a smartphone, which is paid monthly by the organization. It has a special program installed that simplifies interaction with the gadget, which is very important for older people. Using the phone, the client can connect to events that are held online. The topics of the events are varied, everyone can choose a direction according to their preferences. The Club program is very popular.

Thanks to the project, even people with limited mobility got the opportunity to feel involved in the activities carried out at Hesed. Despite their advanced age, clients have not lost interest in life. They are interested in many things, they develop intellectually and spiritually. They are glad that events take place both on holidays and on ordinary days, because this allows them not to feel lonely.
