Intervention in the Interest of Deprived Elderly People

Norbert Vajda


Beside we have to have adequate answers for our material needs we must have active  relationships with our social environment as well. People living in segregated circumstances have limited access to the rest of the society, but elderly people of these fields can be mentally separated from their own communities too, according to recent research results in Hungary.
In every society of the world, external intervention for inhabitants must be based on relevant information. This has got two main resources: the first one is the theoretical framework of group processes; the second is the practical knowledge of the special territory where the programs can be implemented. This paper has got three main chapters. From the “Introduction” the Reader will understand a special element of social inequalities, when we are going to concentrate on the determinant role of residential segregation. In the second
chapter we will deal with the disintegration process and the decaying solidarity level of  small communities, which has a major impact on elderly care. After we introduced the details  of this question, we will provide a good example for intervention in the interest of people living in smaller settlements with dementia. In the “Conclusion”we will summarize the main points, with onwards thoughts about further development.

Keywords: elderly, deprived groups, social intervention, and dementia
