The Prime Minister recalled the government’s actions aimed at seniors, such as the implementation of the Medicines 75+, Pension+, Senior+ programmes or the creation of activity zones for seniors. He also noted that the State budget has funds required to finance said programmes, owing to such measures as the effective fight against the VAT cliques.

The head of the government emphasized the importance of national pride for the Polish people, how much they care about Poland’s good name across the world and about the preservation of historical truth. He added that today a better Poland is also a Poland committed to creating better living conditions for all its senior citizens.

During the Active senior+ meeting the Minister of Health Łukasz Szumowski pointed out that the Medicines 75+ programme was created with seniors in mind. He noted that 155 million medicine packages have already been given out under the programme.

The meeting’s attendees included the Undersecretary of State in the Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Policy Krzysztof Kuberski, the Voivode of Mazowieckie Voivodeship Zdzisław Sipiera and Starost of the Przasnyski poviat Krzysztof Bieńkowski. During the meeting the seniors could go to specially prepared stations and seek advice from the police, the Trade Inspection, or have their blood sugar level and blood pressure checked. Hostesses from the region prepared various culinary delicacies.
