The Social Welfare Institute of the Provincial Council of Cordoba, Spain, decided to launch a pilot programme in 2009 in order to promote active ageing activities amongst its population, one of the most aged provinces of Andalusia. Given the success of the program, in 2010 the official Active and Healthy Ageing Programme was put in place.
The overall objective of the Active Ageing Programme is to improve the living conditions of older people, by implementing actions to improve their life expectancy and stopping, whenever possible, the health deterioration process of this population. This is achieved by complementing the actions of the public System Care Units, and therefore mitigating the individual's lack of autonomy.
In 2012, the programme is being reinforced in the context of the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations. Four specific objectives have been established: promoting health and physical adjustment, optimize and compensate for cognitive functions, foster emotional development and maximize social involvement through active participation.
As part of this commitment, the Social Welfare Institute plans to implement 650 group performances which will reach 20,000 inhabitants in the province.
