It is warm for everyone this summer, but for the elderly it is still a greater struggle.
They often suffer more from the heat, because their kidneys, for example, function less well. Vitalis Vonderhof in Eindhoven is doing everything to cool down its residents.
On Tuesday afternoon they were given ice lollies. Distributed by an entire committee. “We would like to give something back to society. We do this in Eindhoven, but also in Den Bosch, Tilburg and Amsterdam, for example”, says Carmen Lennards from Seniorenvoordeelpas.nl
Vonderhof places a swimming pool on Wednesday. Indoors. “Because outside it’s really too hot, now they can paddle comfortably inside”, exclaims Happiness Consultant Richard van Schaijk.
