We wish our parents and others dear to us that they may grow old, be well and live in peace. As we observe the process of growing old in the elderly close to us, we ourselves become increasingly aware that we’ll need to take action. When we grow old, we want to reduce our burden on our caretakers to an absolute minimum; we want to be happy and independent till our very last day.
The mission of the Mendel Foundation is to make the large amount of existing information and opportunities available in such a practical and applicable way that it allows you to truly accomplish those desires. Too many elderly live their last years, months and days in pain, confusion and depression, undergoing many different treatments and often even hospitalization. We at the Mendel Foundation know that you can do better. You may need a gradual modification of your attitude towards your own 3rd age: it starts and ends with yourself – as of right now.
The Mendel Foundation provides the information and instructions: ‘the Know & How’ – e.g., the practical knowledge and tools – to attain the best possible old age in the best possible health, in the broadest meaning of the word. And at such a high level that others will ask themselves: how did they do that? You’ll want to make sure that you and your dearest wish they would get the same.
The Mendel Foundation is a Not-for-Profit foundation: we make everything we do, develop and publish, freely available. In Dutch, English and Spanish.
