Healthy Aging 65+
The age of 65 years, which coincides with the age of retirement, is the threshold above which a patient is considered and treated as geriatric. In this context, MdM – Greece implements the program “Healthy Aging 65+” in the Open Polyclinic in Perama.
Through this program, elderly persons receive medical care, social support and counseling, specialized to their needs. Specifically, persons over 65 years old that attend the Open Polyclinic of MdM – Greece in Perama, receive geriatric medical treatment and pharmaceutical support. They are also provided with specialized psychosocial support and counseling. The majority of the cases face issues that are related to the loss of their partners.
Beneficiaries of the program are seniors with serious health problems, seniors without supportive environment, low income pensioners as well as bedridden elderly perons.
The program is implemented with the support of the Latsis Foundation.
