Mais Proximidade Melhor Vida

The focus of the work of this team is based on proximity, personalization, trust and networking, all to empower, to give more autonomy, well-being and increase the quality of life of the elderly in their residence, always with a view to reducing the
isolation and solitude. The Association currently supports 120 people with an average age of around 83 years who live in the downtown area of ​​Lisbon and Mouraria. If in the beggining they’ve looked for the first users, now they are the ones who reference a neighbor or a friend who needs support and the waiting list quickly became part of the work tools of this team that has 4 case managers (30 beneficiaries are assigned to each one). At the volunteer level, the first visits to the users are accompanied by the techniques until a relationship of trust between the parties is established and the implementation, on a case-by-case basis, of one of the fundamental rules is guaranteed: “intervening with consent”. It should be underlined that all this support is provided free of charge to users. As a curiosity, we know that on the birthday of the users they are presented with a cake, a gesture that is much appreciated.
