Committed To Becoming More Age-Friendly
Godoy Cruz Argentina
The Municipality of Godoy Cruz has been working on different initiatives and policies oriented to the older adults of the community. Through 2017, a program of social tourism for older adults has been taking place. This program is organized by the retirement centers and the different groups have the chance of visiting different locations of our province such as the thermal baths of Cacheuta.
Moreover, the Municipality also articulates with retirement centers and offers subsidies bound to improve the building conditions of those retirement centers that are deteriorated, so that the older adults that attend do not have to face any type of architectural barriers or difficulties in the access and can enjoy the different activities.
Furthermore, the Municipality also offers counseling to those citizens over the age of 60 years as well as medical attention to those older adults living under conditions of vulnerability or abandonment.
