This dependency assured that it rejects any activity that denigrates the dignity and integrity of our old people and that threaten their physical and emotional health.
The Participation Secretariat clarified that this Geriatric Home is not part of the comprehensive care system for the elderly in the District. This care space for the elderly works independently and with private resources and the District does not have any type of agreement with said foundation.
“From the Secretariat of Participation and Social Development we provide psychosocial support to this type of organization who decide to provide services to older people. The Administrative Department of Health -DADIS- is the government entity that controls and monitors these entities,” the statement said.
The Secretariat for Participation and Social Development, through the Unit for the Elderly and DADIS, mobilized an interdisciplinary team to carry out the due accompaniment and follow-up of this nursing home and evaluate the situation in detail, in order to give citizens a piece of peace of mind.
The Secretariat of Participation and Social Development has at the disposal of the elderly population of the city, 30 Life Centers and 3 nursing homes: Dones de Misericordia, San Pedro Clavel and La Milagrosa ShelterIn addition to this, we provide support and accompaniment to 106 organized groups.
