In 2018, in association with Pejucat (Pensioners and Retirees of Venezuela in Catalonia), we included a new layer of beneficiaries in this program: Immigrants over 60 years of age , who arrived in Barcelona at an advanced age. Through an itinerary of social inclusion , we want to promote: the knowledge of your new place of residence; the active aging of immigrants; participation in training programs; intergenerational relationships; integration activities with local older people and occupational integration. In September 2019, between the two associations and thanks to the support of Obra Social la Caixa, we started an innovative project “ Intercultural Bridge”. It is designed to facilitate the integration of this vulnerable and unassisted group. Its main objectives are:
- Promote awareness of their new place of residence,
- Promote the active aging of Latin American immigrants older than 6, attending to the dimensions: physical, emotional and intellectual.
- Encourage their participation in training programs
- Promote inter-generational relations
- Promote integration activities of Latin American seniors with local seniors.
- Advice for your occupational insertion
