HEKS Angebot Alter und Migration

We would like our retirement to be as carefree as possible

For older migrants in Switzerland

Are you about to retire? Do you have questions or concerns about the AHV/AVS, supplementary benefits, the pension fund or inpatient and outpatient care for the elderly?

HEKS/EPER organizes information events in various languages for migrants of retirement age, held at cultural associations, companies, and in communes. The topics covered relate mainly to social insurance and health-related matters. Interested migrants are also invited to meetings at specialized offices and institutions working in fields relating to seniors. In this way, they obtain worthwhile information about the AHV/AVS, home care services or about care homes in their vicinity. HEKS/EPER also regularly organizes health promotion activities such as gymnastics lessons, swimming courses, excursions or walks. Monthly café meetings give migrants the opportunity to get together in a relaxed atmosphere. Age-related topics are also to be discussed at these get-togethers.
