Grandparents: Acli Roma, “63% of the elderly think they can still give a lot”

“The grandparents and grandmothers of the capital have a great desire to get involved. 63% of those over 64 still feel able to give a lot to society, while 75% play a fundamental role in supporting their family and children ”. The same elderly say so in a questionnaire submitted to them by the Acli in Rome and its province, close to World Grandparents’ Day. “This thrust arises above all from their desire to socialize (67% strongly fear loneliness), even more so after a year and a half in which, due to the pandemic, there have been many difficulties – the Acli point out -: the main one is was linked to the actual difficulty of being able to leave the house (44%), while the renunciation of visits and preventive care and the feeling of anxiety and fear were indicated by 29% of the interviewees. At a very short distance (28%) isolation from family members is indicated as a further aggravation of the fragile condition triggered by the pandemic ”.
Another important data comes from the permanent observatory represented by Caf Acli in Rome from which a large group of elderly people in economic difficulty emerges. For example, of the 12,835 over 64s who filed their income tax returns at Caf Acli Roma in the first half of 2021, almost 30% have an income below 15,000 euros. Same percentage for the ISEE of families who have at least one over 64 members, which does not go beyond 7 thousand euros.
