Paris en compagnie fights the loneliness of the elderly

Published in La Vie in november 2019.

In Paris, 21% of the population is over 65 years old. And among the difficulties encountered by senior citizens, loneliness takes a good place. The association Paris en compagnie has decided to remedy this. Nearly 700 volunteers, many of whom are under 40 years old, accompany elderly people who wish to go out, do their shopping or go to the doctor. A good way to recreate the link between generations.
