Functioning ability and care of the elderly is one of the focused themes of wellbeing practices at KEHO. We aim to promote and strengthen the wellbeing of the elderly by combining multifunctional cooperation between different factors and various projects. Practices based on scientific research such as physical training, nutrition consumption awareness, and cohousing are among the factors that help continuously stimulate the elderly wellbeing in the region.
