saam helps lonely people to alleviate the feeling of loneliness
Loneliness in old age, with an estimated eight million affected in Germany, is not only a current problem but will also become an increasingly relevant problem in the future due to demographic change. The antidote to loneliness is social reintegration and the creation of new social networks. At the user’s own dining table, saam provides a social space for people suffering from loneliness and gives them the opportunity to get to know and maintain social contacts – despite physical distance – and to build up a sustainable social network and environment by inviting other affected people to join each other’s meals digitally.
