COVID -19 : GOLDEN AGE, more than ever at your side!

 

In accordance with the measures taken by the National Security Council on April 24, GOLDEN AGE is working again, respecting all the measures in force since the beginning of the lockdown.

During the COVID - 19 crisisis, we have decided to put things in place for our seniors and their families by joining forces with partner companies. Those partnerships are working well, that's why we decided to continue.

Below you will find explanations about the FOOD PACK developed by GREAT Traiteur, and the Senior Tab, developed by Digital Seniors (a Belgian company), to give you the opportunity to get in touch with loved ones whom we can no longer visit at the moment.

 

Food Pack

GOLDEN Age, joined forces with Great Traiteur, in order to provide FOOD PACK's to simplify the daily life of elderly and isolated people as well as their families.

The FOOD PACK, a vacuum-packed ready meal solution.

The principle is simple: you make your choice on their site, using the "order" button below, among the seasonal dishes prepared by their chefs. The menu changes every week.


The meals will be delivered to your home on Wednesdays and/or Saturdays.

How does it work ?

During first meeting, your GOLDEN organizer (personel assistant) will be dedicated to listen to you and to your specific needs in order to be able to rapidly present and design a solution that fits your situation. 

 

For the success of our collaboration, we will start by answering your urgent requests and at the time we will also take a moment to list all useful and important information related to you and to your parents’ day-to-day life in what we like to call a ”Life Inventory", if you wish so, of course.

​We will then handle the management of general administrative tasks and a majority of our proposed services. Some specific services will however be provided by "GOLDEN AGE" ‘s list of trusted suppliers.

 

In order to facilitate our communication, you will be assigned a single contact person within "GOLDEN AGE". 

Who Am I?

As many other women, I am multitasking. I am a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a godmother, an aunt, a sister-in-law, a daughter-in-law and, above all, I am ME, Sibylle, a woman in her forties.

 

My family, friends and GOLDEN Age are the primary focus of my life. 

In my free time, I like to cook, play sports and enjoy life to the fullest.

 

​Human relations are extremely important to me, and my personal experience makes me want to help people who need it. Help the elderly and their children : that is the reason I decided to create "GOLDEN AGE".

I am totally French-Dutch bilingual and speaking English is not a problem for me.

​One word, and Sibylle does it all... but alone today, I can't offer assistance to everyone, that's why I decided to surround myself with trustworthy people who work with the same values as me, the "GOLDEN Organizers".

 
 

GOLDEN Organizers

Marie-Pierre Vercauteren - Ghent

Marie-Pierre Vercauteren, married, 53 years old and having 2 children aged 25 and 23, Estelle and Arnaud.
I am perfectly bilingual, French-Dutch and I am fluent in English.
For 35 years I worked in a goldsmith's workshop in Ghent, which was also specialized in tableware.
The shop finally closed down and I was looking for a new challenge.
Being a trustworthy, discreet, patient person, I felt that Golden Age is what I need.
Listening to people, seeing how to help them, whether it be administrative, computer, purely practical or emotional, I will put my heart and soul into finding solutions to any kind of problem and any kind of constraint.
My first goal is to be of service to the elderly, to help them and to lighten their daily life.
I will do everything to ensure that Golden Age services are worth their weight in gold!

Eline de Zeeuw - Ghent

Mother of 3 grown up boys.

In both my professional life and private life, relational aspects and providing personal service, are important to me.

I would be pleased to assist seniors in the Ghent area, who are looking for some extra attention or support. 

At our first meeting we will find out and determine your specific wishes and needs.

By taking over practical, administrative and organizational tasks, you will be able to continue enjoying everyday life with less worries or stress.

Anne-Catherine Brabant - Brussels

As a mother of 13-year-old twins, a few months ago I decided to leave my position to go down a path in which I felt more aligned with my values, in a socially useful project where I could satisfy my permanent desire to help others.

Discreet, privileging human relations with empathy, my ability to listen, my sense of confidentiality will allow me to accurately determine your needs in order to implement the appropriate solutions.

By joining Golden Age, I follow my values by supporting seniors, building relationships and providing them with personalized, trusting and effective help at both the administrative and organizational levels.

Priscilla de Hennin - Brabant Wallon

Married and mother of 3 children.

After 15 years of activities in the travel sector to organize and realize the dreams of my customers, I want to develop my professional career.

I now want to devote my time to help those in need as much as possible. Equipped with the ability to listen and to be patient, my mission now is to lighten everyday life and the constraints of everyday life for others. Contacts in both professional and private life are essential to me.
