Heliopolis Elderly Center

To contribute to the social inclusion of older adults in situations of vulnerability, by fostering healthy aging, providing autonomy, dignity, and integration in a protective environment.

Instituto Velho Amigo is a non-profit association that since 1999 has contributed to the inclusion of the elderly, ensuring their rights and valuing their participation in society. IVA works to garner resources and partners to serve the 19 institutions they support, by contributing with financial and human resources for over 1,700 seniors who live in a situation of vulnerability, in several houses located in the city of São Paulo. Instituto Velho Amigo only cooperates with institutions that assist older people with unmet care and support needs and who cannot depend on family members.
