Welfare Center for the Disabled People John Paul II
The John Paul II Center for the Disabled provides full assistance to people with multiple disabilities. Most of them have been affectionately welcomed in the facilities of Irma Dulce Social Works for many years. Currently, 88 people of both sexes still have their address in the CAPD, with less than 40% having some family references. For these, the institution has been seeking the rescue of the affective bonds with the family, aiming, when possible, a future reintegration. Over the last few years, 30 residents have returned to their families.
In addition to the basic care of hosting, food and health, the caregiver’s team of this unit, guided by a multi professional support group, has as its mission the creation of a daily environment of affective exchanges, the progressive construction of autonomy and the development of activities that contribute to the social and community inclusion of its residents.
