Together for the Grandparents' House

The "Casa dei Nonni Sant'Anna" is a fundamental presence in the territory of Forlì to respond to the increasingly urgent need to combat loneliness in old age. That's why we ask for your support to help the Parish S. Maria Ausiliatrice to sustain the many expenses and activities of the centre. Families and elderly people cannot remain alone, especially after the year we have just lived, forced into a serious isolation. To stay close to them we need your help.

Together for the Grandparents' House

The "Casa dei Nonni Sant'Anna" is a fundamental presence in the territory of Forlì to respond to the increasingly urgent need to combat loneliness in old age. That's why we ask for your support to help the Parish S. Maria Ausiliatrice to sustain the many expenses and activities of the centre. Families and elderly people cannot remain alone, especially after the year we have just lived, forced into a serious isolation. To stay close to them we need your help.

Imagine a big house where every elderly person can be a grandparent: that's it, it's the "Casa dei Nonni Sant'Anna" (Sant'Anna Grandparents' House), born in 2015 from the meeting between the Parish S. Maria Ausiliatrice of Forlì and the sharing experience of the Comunità Papa Giovanni XXIII, to respond to the increasingly urgent need to fight the loneliness of the third age.
Cooking, singing, body and mind training, moments of prayer together. The parish life, the involvement of volunteers and the presence of the children of the operators at certain times and periods, make the House a truly familiar environment, and therefore warm and welcoming.
Since the arrival of the pandemic, however, the rhythms have changed and there have been periods of forced closure during the hardest lockdown. Since a few months the activity has resumed but many activities have been suspended and the number of people attending the centre every day has been reduced to protect them first and also the operators. The presence has remained constant, but adapting times and ways.
All this has led to moments of great difficulty, not only for the centre itself and its sustenance but especially for the families who are used to finding help here in the daily management of their families. Supporting the possibility for the elderly to remain in their contexts of life, together with the people they love, in fact, is often possible by offering them a place where they can spend hours in the company of others, so as to counteract psychophysical decay and loneliness and provide relief to the families.
At present the centre can accommodate a maximum of 8/10 people, although there are many more requests. The few current resources do not allow us to create other groups and equip new spaces where we can accommodate more seniors, in total safety. In addition, in this last year the Parish has also taken charge of the free participation fee that would allow to support the activities of the center, but that many elderly people in difficulty can not guarantee. Their serenity is the first thing, so we have not closed our doors to them, but now we need someone to help the Quarry Parish to find the resources to continue these activities.
The "Casa dei Nonni Sant'Anna" is a fundamental presence in the Forlì area and that is why we are asking for your help. Families and elderly people cannot be left alone, especially after the year we have just lived, forced into extreme loneliness. To stand by them we need your support.

Createyour own fundraiser and give it life, sharing it with your friends, relatives, colleagues or acquaintances. Or support the volunteers and operators of the House who have put themselves at stake for this project. Everything that will be donated will arrive directly in the bank account of the Parish. Let's help them together!
