A pastry bakery situated on Geldropseweg in Eindhoven, is going to bake cakes for lonely elderly people in the city.
Jolisa Dragatis, owner of De Ouwe Taart Bakery, is going to bake cakes, together with elderly people, monthly. Later on, the senior citizens will be eating their baked cakes.
Ms. Dragatis hopes, this action will help reduce loneliness among many elderly people. This activity, stemmed from a story, of a 71-year-old lady, about her loneliness and about the fact, that she hardly sees her children anymore.
The baker wants to invite eight elderly people every other month for a cake baking session. The first afternoon session will be on the 20th of April at her bakery, De Oude Taart.
