A listening and counseling space for vulnerable people
Ciss 38 opened a listening and counseling space on Friday, March 3, at its Senior Center. “The Convergence Networks project is funded thanks to Ministerial Solidarity Funds that will be distributed to municipalities until 2030 to promote social activities in the region – explains Doris Brinkman, Head of the Integrated Area for Seniors and Disabled – The initiative began in December 2021 with the aim of supporting home care for the elderly, caregivers and family members. The cities of Unione Montane were the first to leave. Since the activity has proven successful, in 2022 it will be extended to all municipalities of the consortium ».
Eleven branches have been activated so far, the latest of which opened on February 3 in Fileto. The meter will be available to residents on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, from 9.30 to 11.30. On Friday 17 March, starting at 4.30pm, there will be a creative cooking workshop for grandparents and grandchildren, focusing on the character Harry Potter. «We want to provide information and advice for home care activities – continues Brinkmann – we also want to develop home interventions aimed at accompanying visits, dealing with paperwork and spending, as well as monitoring personal well-being. The project provides four hours of activation per week for four months free of charge. Within the networks there are moments of gathering and activities that target all citizens, and are also carried out with the aim of prevention, and also the ability to contact those in need.
