Through the social project, the Foundation offers Ferrero Seniors (Group employees who have completed 25 years of service) a new concept of old age with its programme of creative, recreational and social activities, accompanied by social and healthcare services.
The Foundation helps senior citizens to perceive ageing as a chance to discover new opportunities.It promotes a different, positive idea of the third age, which can be a period of richness that enhances the social capital of individuals and the legacy of values, experience, wisdom and humanity that distinguishes elderly people.Life in the Foundation leaves no room for solitude and marginality because everything takes place in pursuit of creativity, hard work, personal growth, involvement, social relations, discovery and fulfilment of everyone's specific potentials. New stimuli arrive from intergenerational encounters and voluntary service that follow the conviction that we can learn and be useful at any age.
The Foundation guarantees social and healthcare services on a daily basis.
Besides courses that enhance motor skills and aim to combat various pathologies, a network of collaborations has been activated with specialist medical centres including the Macula Foundation in Genoa, the Institute for Cancer Research and Treatment in Candiolo, the European Institute of Oncology in Milan, the National Cancer Institute in Naples and the San Raffaele Scientific Institute in Milan.
Groups for Activities, Meetings and Solidarity
Together with my family, I wanted to create a nursery school that could be a "family" place, where children could play, enjoy workshops, grow day by day as protagonists of their progress, and be stimulated by the activities and the connection to Seniors of the Foundation who, with their respectful presence and their wisdom, know how to pass down traditions.Maria Franca Ferrero
