SUPPORT FOR SENIORS(SAPA)     

The goal of this program, is to inform seniors and enable them to age well, in good health, within their community. The program, whose scope is wide since it is both preventive and curative, encourages the adoption or maintenance of a healthy lifestyle, for both autonomous people and those with loss of autonomy.

Information and communication can facilitate the daily lives of seniors, hence the importance of helping them to understand services available to them, and how to use them.
