This program is orientated towards elderly people, fragile and humbled who live in grinding poverty, providing direct attention to them in their own place, by means of specific interventions which try to favor their permanence and integration into their own environment. This program attends old men (46 %) and women (54 %) of the urban sector of the communities of Concepción, Talcahuano, Hualpén, Chiguayante, San Pedro del Mar y Tomé, through domiciled visits. The frequency of these visits depends on their individual, familiar and social characteristics of these people.
The beneficiaries of the program live in poor conditions.

La Serena, in northern Chile, is the country's second-oldest town. La Serena maintains a Spanish neo-colonial style according to the "Plan Serena" implemented by the Chilean government, which allowed the city to grow yet keep its own unique style. The heritage of the city includes over 30 churches, a romantic avenue of replica classical Italian statues, elegant colonial buildings and numerous gardens and parks. La Serena is a pretty colonial town with a population of about 120,000. It is the capital city of Coquimbo Province, located about 250 miles north of the Chilean capital of Santiago.
From here you can reach the Elqui Valley, famous for producing "Pisco", (the traditional drink of choice in the Andes), and for being one of the world's major astronomical centers due to its clear skies (Tololo, Campanas and Silla Observatories). The surrounding area has the greatest concentration of astronomical observatories in the world.
