The Community will start the home help service for the care of people with dependency in Villanueva del Río Segura, thanks to the agreement signed today by the Minister of Family and Equal Opportunities, Violante Tomás, and the mayor of Villanueva del Safe River, Jesus Mariano Viciana.
Through this agreement, the IMAS will finance with a total of 97,020 euros the provision of this service to people with dependency of the municipality.
The forecast provision corresponds to the 2018, 2019 and 2020 annuities, since the agreement will last until March 31, 2020.
The budget will be allocated to actions in the homes of people in situations of dependency, in order to meet the needs of their daily lives.
They can be services related to household or household needs: cleaning, washing and cooking, among others, as well as personal attention and the performance of daily activities.
Among the improvements implemented by the Ministry of Family and Equal Opportunities for people with dependency is the extension of home help service through an agreement, so that all municipalities in the region that request it can count on this service in the same conditions.
This service began last year in Totana, Águilas, Alhama de Murcia, San Pedro del Pinatar, Murcia, Archena, Mazarrón, Yecla, Lorca, Abarán, Alcantarilla and Puerto Lumbreras.
This year's budget includes an amount of 1.3 million euros that are used to process new agreements with the municipalities that have requested it: Jumilla, Ricote, Villanueva del Segura River, Ulea, Mula, Eastern Mancomunidad, Aledo Albudeite , Lorquí, Blanca, Campos del Río and Molina de Segura.
The counselor explained that "it is about professionalizing a service, which contributes to the creation of employment, which aims to meet the demands of families who need qualified personnel for the care of anyone whose functional or social independence is limited, In their own home, the people that make up the service have a common characteristic: the vocation of service.
