In the third week of August we hold a camp in
the Sierra de Priego de Córdoba, specially designed for the elderly. The
food and the entire program to be developed during those days, is
prepared by a dedicated team. This camp is designed especially for those
elderly persons with limited economic means to afford a summer vacation,
since the prices are very reasonable for them.
From October to December a group of more than
25 Elderly persons practice Christmas Carols to share on Christmas day
with other residents Seniors in Old Peoples Homes. In addition to the
songs and love they get during the visit, they are given a special
present, sometimes the only one they receive at Christmas.
Elderly Persons Day
On October 1 Elders Day is celebrated
internationally. Doukonía organizes a special day with them where we
highlight the importance of our Elders and at the same time deliver a
gift to each one. It is wonderful to see how happy and pleased everyone
feels and how dressed up they become for the occasion.
This activity brings the Seville Fair to the
elderly as it is impossible for them to attend the real one. We set up a
similar Feria to the original so that they can recall the joy of their
youthful years. We provide typical food, dances and competitions and a
Feria finish with chocolate and churros.
During the Spring we organise a weekend in
the Seville mountains where we enjoy the natural sights and a relaxing
time of mutual friendship as well as other activities.
Every year we organize a weekend cultural
trip at affordable prices where they can get to know part of the Spanish
and Portuguese geography. Since the start of Doukonia we have been to:
Lisbon, Granada, Cordoba, Toledo and soon we will discover Jaen and its
