What is AGATHE all about?
AGATHE is a free counselling and placement service with which the state of Thuringia would like to support senior citizens in shaping their everyday lives in a self-determined way and finding suitable offers close to their place of residence.
The aim of AGATHE is to enable single seniors aged 63 and over to participate in social life and to promote independence in their own living environment. To this end, we provide information and advice on various topics and pass on (leisure) offers from associations, counselling centres and other actors.
Since we mainly offer referral advice, a network of different professions and institutions is important. That is why good cooperation with other agencies in the district such as district mayors, district centres and other counselling centres, associations, parishes and care facilities is very important to us..
Consultations can take place on request at your home, but also by phone or during our office hours. We inform about existing offers in the district and in the immediate locality such as senior citizens’ meetings, offers from church congregations and sports groups.

I personally see great potential in senior citizens. That is why I am committed to the participation of older people. Loneliness in old age should be prevented. Instead, as part of the “AGATHE” project, I would like to focus on senior citizens who feel they are on the margins of society.

Agathe – for me, is having time for the people who turn to me with their concerns. I would like to listen and advise senior citizens. It is very important for me to address the topics that concern you and to meet you on an equal place. I would like to be the contact person for you in your district! In order to make this possible, I am looking forward to a good cooperation with the various local agencies of the senior citizen work in Erfurt.

Areas we operating
More and more people live alone in old age and feel lonely.
They simply don’t have anyone to help them in their everyday lives. The children and grandchildren live far away or are busy with their own lives. Conversations often take place only briefly when shopping or visiting the doctor.
We want to change that. We want all people, and especially the elderly, to feel more joy again and to be able to spend their lives in the community.
To achieve this goal, we have launched the AGATHE program. At AGATHE, trained specialists will make you offers that enable contacts and which prevent loneliness in old age.
Eight regions will be part of AGATHE in 2021. People over the age of 63 who live alone in these areas will receive information about the program. It also states which specialists they can turn to.

What doesn’t fit, is made to fit! Due to the current infection protection and hygiene requirements, ANDERS-Tours cannot yet take place as usual, as we are not allowed to transport groups of people with our club bus. But luckily there is also public transport!
Out of the place, out into the country. We are on the road to see beautiful things and experience culture, there is something for everyone. Of course, there is also coffee and cake, which should not be missing. To the question, “What do you particularly appreciate about our tour?”, comes out of one mouth: “The togetherness.”
Everyone is welcome here, because everyone is an expert in their own lives. We exchange ideas on a wide variety of topics, discuss questions relevant to everyday life and share life experiences.
