Officer for Seniors
The representative for seniors takes care of the special interests of older people within the Konz municipality and represents them in dealings with the council and administration, among other things.
Demographic change, age structure, aging society - these are just a few key words that represent the current population development. In Konz, too, more than 27%, i.e. more than a quarter of the residents, are over 60 years old, and the trend is rising. The needs of this age group have fundamentally changed.
The senior citizens' representative has the opportunity to bundle and channel the interests of senior citizens. An important social group gets a mouthpiece through the senior citizens' representative. Due to the demographic trend, this will gain in importance.
Mr. Hurth not only liaises with the administration but also with and between the numerous groups and providers of various group-specific services and advice. This leads to better utilization of existing offers and thus represents an increase in quality of life.
At the same time, the gradual and constantly changing interests and ideas of senior citizens are processed with the bundling function and can thus be incorporated into the decisions of the municipal committees. In this way, seniors can be integrated into society as a whole in the best possible way.
