Issues we face
Mother Theresa said:

This is what we want to change. Ibasho recognizes that people fear two things as we age -- social isolation and losing respect from others in society.
Our goal is to create a shared future in which aging is not something to fear, but to enjoy, as a respected and valued member of communities across the globe.
What would Ibasho like to achieve?
- Bring social change for how the general public views aging
- Broaden the vision of our current elder care system
- Empower older people and increase their sense of self-worth
- Help young people to benefit from their elders’ wisdom and experience
- Create an informal environment, which facilitates normalcy
- Use local-based solutions
- Source of outreach and assistance to vulnerable populations
- Strengthen community fabric and increase resilience toward internal and external factors
- Re-engage people living with dementia or other disabilities, and their families
