The Town Council of Calp, through the Municipal Departments for Citizen Participation and Senior Citizens has completed the study phase of the project "Calp, age friendly town". This is an initiative promoted by the World Health Organization so that cities can become spaces that meet the needs of the elderly in multiple areas and consequently improve their quality of life.
The diagnostic phase is the first of the four phases in which this initiative will be developed and has consisted in conducting surveys and discussion groups among people over 60 years old to know their opinion about the deficiencies for this group in the town.
During the coming weeks the data obtained in this study will be analyzed and the results will be publicly exposed in September.
Based on this information, the second phase will be developed, consisting of an action plan that will take place in a period of three to five years. In that fifth year, the third phase will begin with an evaluation of the initiatives that have been carried out up to that moment, while the fourth phase will involve the implementation of periodic evaluations that will be developed every five years to review compliance with the initial objectives and that must allow Calp to become an age friendly town.
