The “Geron” Foundation is a humanitarian, non-governmental organisation born in 1991 and based in Romania. Initially the Foundation offered free services for elderly care at home. Since 1995 they focused on functional and semi-dependente addicts and they have developed several services in this direction.
Mission: The Geron Foundation promotes associative behaviour, mobilizes and organizes human, financial and material resources, develops “working partnerships” with other NGOs, with universities, nursing schools, local administration, governmental institutions and possible sponsors. The Foundation supports structural changes in the overall social life of older people, based on ample knowledge of their needs as well as of the Romanian context, and is constantly promoting the role of community services and at-home assistance within the framework of the reform of the medical and care systems in Romania.
