“Building Bridges between Senior Citizens and Students in the Elderly Care in the EU – Project 2014 – 2015”
1. Needs and problems of the aged persons in rural versus urban milieu
In 2014, a group of students of the third year from the Faculty of Sociology and Social Assistance of the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, made a study concerning the needs and problems of the aged persons in rural and urban milieu. Their purpose was to improve the quality of life of the aged persons by offering the possibility to participate in programmes created for them, getting in this way a sentiment of usefulness and perhaps a better perspective of their own life. At the same time, they wanted to see the similarities and the differences for the two categories of aged persons.
