“Camina Conmigo (Walk With Me) is a project that connects seniors with younger people, asking them to spend a few hours in the daily life of the other person, in order to help solve a problem that society doesn’t always perceive.”
Feelings of sadness or loneliness are often stronger in older people because they often experiment with drastic changes as they age. While a lack of motivation does not have to be tied to a particular nationality, age, or social status, seniors suffer more often from it. The goal of Camina Conmigo is to show both people how the other one lives by providing a match for every participant, suggesting different activities they can do together, and providing all the logistics.
