Enel Cuore is going to support the three projects in proportion to the number of "clicks".

"Home is best" is the project facilitating the elderly to stay in their familiar environment to postpone the process of isolation and loss of selfsufficiency. It is an innovative project of home-care started in 2004 in 7 Italian cities and supported by Enel Cuore.

The program is based on innovative strategies of active monitoring, promoting informal network of support (neighbours, shops, porters), and especially on the intervention of social workers visiting the person regularly to support the dealing with every day problems, the cure of the body and to mantain relevant social and affective relationships. The new project that is going to be supported by Enel Cuore will extend the program to three more cities: L'Aquila, Ferentino (Frosinone) and Naples (neighborhood Sanità). The beneficiaries of the project are 1,000, among those 300 are older than 75.
