Febiofest has partnered with the charity Život 90

Život 90

The organisers of Prague IFF – Febiofest recognise the increasing number of cases of senior neglect , and domestic violence and abuse of the elders. Febiofest has partnered with the charity Život 90, a community centre in Prague. Život 90 runs the only free and nonstop helpline for the elderly: 800 157 157, and offers the service of installing panic alarm buttons, which has helped to save thousands of lives across the Czech Republic. Život 90’s mission is to help the elderly so that they can live full lives exactly where they want – in their own home. “Of course the society condemns and disapproves of explicit senior abuse. However, this is not just about abuse, but also about limiting the seniors’ activity, denying them the right to make decisions, maintain privacy or not to lose their dignity. This abuse often appears in the form of addressing the elderly by their first names without consent, or with well-meant sentences such as: It’s better if I do it for you. There are so many elderly that are denied basic human dignity, and no deranged violent criminals are to blame. We – the children, grandchildren, friends and caretakers – are the ones at fault,” says Jan Lorman, the founder and director of Život 90.
