11.6 thousand disabled citizens of Mogilev region get social home service

11.6 thousand disabled citizens of Mogilev region get social home service. The information is provided by the deputy chairman of the Regional Labour, Employment and Social Security Committee Svetlana Tarasenko.

The number of the disabled in Mogilev region runs to 309.4 including 15.8 thousand single citizens and 78 thousand elderly people living alone. According to Svetlana Tarasenko, all of them need special care, attention since the problems of community and consumer facilities are very difficult for them to solve unassisted.

Social centres have 13 departments of round-the-clock stay to host 649 persons. There is a nurse to assist them. There are also 4 day-time stay departments, three of them opened last year.

The centres have 90 leisure clubs and amateur associations to develop creative activities, arrange meetings with interesting people, and promote communication.

Svetlana Tarasenko says that the region is constantly working to make social services closer to disabled people’s homes. Agritownships have launched 12 utility crews providing one-time services and 25 mobile crews delivering complex services (information and legal, social and utility, psychological services).

Social centres are also working out the system of foster families: a social worker with the agreement of the older accomodates the latter into his family to be taken care of for a while. In Svetlana Tarasenko’s words, this practice is widely used in Mogilev City, Glussk, Kostyukovichi, Krasnopoliye, Krugloye and Mogilev districts.

Mogilev region has also got 9 homes for senior or disabled citizens including 2 general ones to host 553 people.
