First seasonal apartment of Mogilev region to open in Bykhov district

The seasonal apartment for the elderly people will be opened in Bykhov district; it will be the first apartment of the kind in Mogilev region. The information was provided by director of Bykhov social service centre Natalia Novikova.

There elderly people will life in a three-room flat of a two-storied block of 16 flats situated at Ukhlyast village of Smolitski rural council. The flat has recently been redecorated, mostly thanks to Blago charitable organisation from Mogilev that granted the major part of building materials, furniture and bathroom fitment. The elderly people from remote underpopulated villages will move here in early November to spend winter period comfortably: each of them will have an own room, while kitchen and sitting room will be shared.

A specialist from the social service will visit them twice a day to help in cleaning, cooking, going shopping. By the way, the tenants' pension benefits will be at their own disposal. They will only have to share public utility charges. Besides, the seasonal apartment will have a trustee from the administration of the centre who will come to see the elderly people one or twice a week.

This seasonal apartment happens to be a piloting project for Mogilev region. It is initiated by the labour, employment and social protection committee of Mogilev region executive committee and Bykhov district executive committee. Later on the same project is planned to be realised in other districts.
