Dutch supermarket to spot old-age vulnerability and frailty

 

In the framework of the Super Care project run by the Dutch care organisation Royaal Zorg, some 20 employees of a supermarket in Den Hague will be trained to pay more particular attention to isolated vulnerable elderly shoppers.
The idea is not to turn employees into care specialists but help detect loneliness and frailty among older people and refer them to medical or welfare assistance services if necessary.
