Did you know that 32% of the European Union’s older adult’s population lives alone? Loneliness and lack of adapted services make seniors more vulnerable in rural and mountainous areas. This is why SILVER SMEs is investigating on improvements of regional support to rural SMEs of the Silver Economy!
SILVER SMEs partners gathered in Cork, Ireland, in February 2020, to discuss business opportunities linked to dependent ageing population during SILVER SMEs’ third international conference. 12 good practices from across Europe were introduced during the event, giving inspiration to support dependent older adults in all European rural and mountainous regions.
Discover these good practices, the outputs of the conference and SILVER SMEs’ new video in the project 6th newsletter!
