Within the framework of the project implemented by the Association of Polish Medicine, an Integrated Care Center was established – information and legal and psychological support based in Poznań.
The project is being implemented from 1 November 2016 until 30 April 2019. Its main goal is to increase social inclusion by facilitating the access of 100 dependent and disability seniors to affordable, sustainable and high quality social services in the general interest and in the local community.
Project participants use mobile phones equipped with so- A “life button” that can press a button to connect to a teleoptic to assess a situation and a supportive reaction – call a neighbor or other person with a key to your child’s home, call the medical or other services. Telephones will be equipped with a SIM card with a subscription for the duration of the project providing free calls.
The project integrates 3 types of activities: medical care, care and activation, including: Support for the Individual Development Plan for Care and Support; Care services, medical care, nursing, rehabilitation services – these services will be of an emergency nature and will operate on an emergency basis and will, where possible, be replaced or supplemented by services from existing systems. The Integrated Care Care Center will focus primarily on chronically ill and sick people, with special attention being paid to those on the waiting list for Social Assistance Homes, whose health does not require hospitalization, but causes severe deficits in self-care. The independent, independent functioning in their homes. Activities will also be covered by patients directly after hospitalization, whose health needs increased nursing care, pharmacovigilance supervision, comprehensive follow-up and countermeasures, and health care support and education, as well as counseling on the care and treatment of dependents. These people require daily, sometimes 24 hour, professional, intensive care, care and continuation of treatment. Care services will primarily be provided to a single person who, due to age, illness or other causes, needs help from others and is deprived of it. In addition, since care for seniors, including sick and seriously ill, is based primarily on relatives and family, creating a model for support and care for the elderly, we also take into account the needs and expectations of caregivers of older people who need care. The target group will also include local government authorities, social assistance and inclusion institutions, local NGOs, local communities and other actors working for people at risk of social exclusion, including in particular the elderly and dependent people.
