Elderly residents in Quarteira are to receive help at home from volunteers. The recently-launched ‘Isolated Elderly’ programme aims to identify and assist with the needs of the county’s over-65s.

A network of volunteers has been established to help with tasks from taking the elderly who are considered to be “socially isolated” shopping or to the pharmacy, out for a walk, and to provide company. The GNR flagged 45,563 elderly people living alone or in isolation throughout the country in October 2018, 47 more than in the ‘Senior Census’ carried out in 2017.
