"They are also citizens, and sometimes, if you don't have someone in, people don't know anything about the residence", explains Elisabet Cardona, Councilor for Policies of the Mayor of the City Council. This initiative is carried out in the Facebook profile of the Santa Llúcia Residence Hall, and tries to bring residents closer to their residents of Dénia, and also open the center to the outside, alleviating confinement. It also serves as an information mechanism for families, in addition to the videoconferences and video calls that are already made.
So far, it has been presented to four users: who they are, what their life has been like, "so that you can feel with your neighbors"Cardona explains. The initiative is part of the team of professionals from the Residence, who meet to find activities and think about how to improve.
How the de-escalation will be done in the Nursing Home
According to the councilor, "Fortunately, the situation is good, there is no infected. From the beginning, even before the state of alarm began, we worked with great foresight, and that has paid off. ". Although without letting down their guard at any time, the situation will begin to relax soon, when users can go out into the garden.
At the moment, they are experiencing confinement in their rooms, and the possibility of using the garden will not come until the Government clearly announces how it will work in the residences. Of course, although there is flexibility, family visits will continue to be restricted, specifies Elisabet Cardona. The councilor also explains that users need to go out, to give them the air, and they also need a shoulder to lean on when they are in less spirits: "This crisis has led to very low moments for both workers and users, so we must support and understand them, and work hard on this human side".
