Nurit Fischer-Scheme: 0000-0003-4531-7311


Social Work


In our complex sociocultural environment, increasing numbers of older adults spend their last years relatively isolated. Promoting programs that connect seniors with younger individuals provides a forum to develop meaningful and authentic relationships. An innovative program that includes a series of interpersonal activities has been designed. These activities generate joint experiences, and enable the seniors to develop better gerotranscendence. In this interactive workshop, participants will learn to implement a 3 months program to apply in different communities and service settings.
