Roure Foundation and ARC Solutions

Everybody to the street nowadays, communication goes really fast. Everything becomes easy to access the information; everyone has access to the answers to most questions and problems.

Despite this, at this stage of the millennium, there are still people living communication in a different way, i.e., from direct contact with other people. These people, mostly elderly people with physical disabilities, left the train of development of society long time ago, not by choice, but by disability. And unwittingly, those that are walking with another step faster, we forget that they still need to be communicated, connected, and alive!

Sometimes there are answers much easier than we can think; a glass of water can quench thirst, and an adapted vehicle can make a person back to live in community and feel alive again. 

With an electric wheelchair or scooter, old people can return to stroll around the neighborhood, stopping to chat with the shopkeeper where they had always bought the food, and over all, can again feel like their neighbors asked about them, do you need something?  can I help you … human contact

From the Roure Foundation encourages these trips with weekly and monthly activities. Thursdays do walks around the neighborhood and every month we organize trips to museums, palaces, fairs where most people enjoy the ride, the sun and company.

ARC Solutions collaborates with this project with the donation of scooters, to help the foundation in its project everybody to the street.

We are deeply grateful to the Roura Foundation allowing us to participate and hope to continue working in the future with more and new actions that help older people to continue enjoying life with total freedom of movement.
