Senior’s IT Literacy project: This project provides digital device, training and mentoring for senior’s in the community or in aged care facilities who want to improve their connections with others.

 

Resources Assistance for Aged Care Services:

 We assist aged care services, including residential aged care facilities, to implement culturally appropriate care to their residents and to improve their knowledge and awareness of the Macedonian culture.

We have developed resources for aged care services so they can assist older people better and increase their culturally appropriate care, including:
