Sevastopol «School of Care»: specialists teach general care skills for the elderly and disabled
On May 17, within the framework of the “School of Care” project, a meeting was held between social workers and citizens caring for elderly relatives and the disabled with a specialist from the Medical Information and Analytical Center. Doctor Anna Malenko gave a lecture on the topic “Care Skills for Patients with Diabetes”.
This week we look at the specifics of caring for older patients with diabetes. In general, all our lectures are aimed not only at maintaining the general condition of the patient, but also at preventing mental illness, conflicts in the family.— quotes the press service of the Government of Sevastopol physician.
Since the beginning of 2023, more than 300 people have taken part in such training lectures.
With age, a person gradually fades away all the natural processes in the body, and the work of the brain, unfortunately, is no exception. Relatives can only come to terms with an incurable disease. In our classes, students will learn how to properly handle the wards, how to help them move around, navigate in space, how to provide care for people with limited mobility and create comfortable conditions for their life.— says Olga Matus, head of the department of social services at home for elderly and disabled citizens.
Anyone who cares for elderly relatives or people with disabilities, as well as social workers, can sign up for classes under the School of Care project. Contact by phone +7 (8692) 55-06-96.
Recall that the «School of Care» was created in 2020 on the basis of the regional project «Older Generation» of the national project «Demography».
