The local government promotes ageing in place, and to create a community where residents want to keep on living regardless of how old they may become. In recognition of the fact that many elders living alone lose all social contacts, older persons (70 years and over, living alone or with an elderly spouse) may ask the local government to arrange for regular visits by community volunteers. A volunteer will come for a face-to-face discussion on the desired frequency of visits and emergency contacts at the beginning of the service.
