How to survive getting older?

BY LUDO HELLEMANS
@ VOL 29 ON FEB 29, 2016

How to survive getting older? That is the question asked by Ludo Hellemans. We are facing an ageing society, especially here in Limburg. The demographic change poses new challenges for the entire society. It is not only a challenge for the elderly but also for younger citizens.

Ludo has a solution for this challenge, a new form of community housing for citizens over 50, located right in the middle of the city holding two core characteristics: mutual support to ensure autonomy of the residents and sustained interaction with the neighbourhood.
