News PhotoHorizontal,Journey,Lifestyles,Senior Adult,Slovenia,Southern European DescentPhotographer Collection: AFP TO GO WITH AFP STORY OF BOJAN KAVCIC A picture shows a care home for the elderly in Topolsica on July 24, 2014, where Miquel Ribas, an 82-year old Spaniard, stayed during a week-long trip to Slovenia. Ribas, who lives in a care home in Mataro, on the Spanish coast near Barcelona, has free accommodation during his trip in a similar care home in Slovenia, provided by Jozica Kucera, a 77-year-old Slovenian widow, who will spend the same time in his room in Spain. This is the first international exchange of rooms in care homes for seniors, organized by social networking agency Linkedage, a Slovenian company that developed a web platform to link residences all over Europe and the world to enable similar exchanges or to rent vacant rooms.
