Press release: Support for the project ALIA

Support for the project ALIA (Agile living in old age) promised district vice-president Lothar Höher and district councilor Martin Preuß during a visit to Weiherhammer. Prof. Dr. Erich Bauer, Chairman of the Board of the Lars and Christian Engel Foundation, and Project Manager David Rester explained the participative approach of the project, which aims to design a model for rural aging. The interlocutors agreed that there is a high demand for international nurses and that educational institutions are required here. The network idea was welcomed by ALIA, which aims to co-operate with actors in the care of the elderly, intergenerational initiatives and social institutions. This is the only way to gain a new understanding of how aging can succeed in new ways. The priorities of Bavarian politics – rural areas, care, digitization and education 4.0 – are presented in a forward-looking manner in ALIA.
