Loneliness peaks among vulnerable seniors from the age of 80. Even more than for others, it is difficult for them to take steps of their own that can prevent or remedy loneliness. As an older person in a residential care centre, you don't get much attention anyway. In these confusing times, this only gets worse. Hence this warm call: "Call me, write me, mail me, support me and support my partner who cannot come and visit me now. Don't let me down just now." And don't forget the elderly around you either! Little things make a world of difference!
Patrick Dillen, founder of Noblito, explains:
Connection as a cure for loneliness. At Noblito, the vulnerable person is put central. The positive aspects are in the little things in life: a chat, a flower or a card, a phone call, a photo, a small token of attention, ... Noblito creates awareness and wants more attention for the elderly. Hence this warm call for solidarity.
Bart Verbeeck (Showbizz Bart) gave his opinion earlier in a broadcast of the Seventh Day:
Residential care centers should be palaces where we treat people like kings and queens in the last years of their lives. And of course that is not only the task of the government, but of all of us. Overload the elderly with love and care. Without them, there would be nothing now!

Noblito wants to set up networks around vulnerable elderly people in an innovative and innovative way. Reminding people to contact our elderly once in a while.
