The starting point of Gubbe's operations is to help elderly people live happier and more active life. The company's new type of service for the elderly connects an elderly person with a Gubbe, trustworthy and happy companion who visits the elderly person regularly.

Staria becomes a Gubbe Godparent

Staria joins Gubbe's godparent program by providing one lonely elderly person with a Gubbe service for a year. Gubbe's sponsorship program enables companies to provide regular gubbe visits to lonely elderly people for a year, while offering meaningful part-time job for young people. The aim is to get as many godparent companies involved so that no elderly person is left alone. For many, gubbe visit is the highlight of each week and even the only encounter they have during the week.

"Gubbe does important work, so we are excited about the new co-operation and the opportunity to support Gubbe's journey. Responsibility is at the heart of Staria, and that's why we are honored to be part of Gubbe’s Godparent program. We believe that the co-operation will be very rewarding for both sides!"
