Many recent studies document a demographic shift towards an older and healthier population [1]. The challenges posed by an aging society include care needs and social costs [2]. Many elderly citizens, following retirement, quickly become marginalized, losing their social links, which often leads to loneliness. Some consider the elderly a cost burden, rather than a resource capable of “value creation” in the society.
