A word for everyone
There are more than 500 000 old age people living in Lithuania. Our society is aging at the fastest pace in the whole European Union and it is estimated by 2030 every third resident in the country will be older than 60 years old. All that has been followed by diminishing human and social relationship, loneliness, isolation and even bad health and poverty.
Based on the data from Statistics Lithuania, almost half of the population over 65 years old live alone, hardly 5% of them still work, up to 20% live in poverty. According to the most recent data from Global AgeWatch, Lithuania ranks only 63 out of 96 countries based elderly people living conditions.
