What is Crescendo ?
Crescendo is a coalition of organizations and international Catholic congregations of varied disciplines yet all active in the field of care for the elderly, each one retaining its complete autonomy and charism.
The major concern of Crescendo is to foster a humanist approach which values the development of the aging, respecting their dignity and their spiritual wealth.
Through its activity Crescendo facilitates exchanges, offering a platform for those who work with the elderly : programs and specialist agencies of the UN, international organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGO), professionals, experts and networks of elderly persons and the political world.
Crescendo acts through, for and with elderly, towards a more human society for all ages.
Crescendo recognizes the increasing importance of lifelong spiritual values, particularly the Christian values of the family and the intergenerational ones.
