Problem

The elderly population in Korea is rapidly increasing and this phenomenon is expected to expand to the entire world. However, the supports for elders is extremely scarce or unavilable in the current society.

Solution

Enhancing elders’ social participation in younger communities will support elders by offering emotional fulfillment and self-satisfaction. Furthermore, encouraging intergenerational discussion will help both elders and youngers value each others’ companionship with empathy.
