The home-delivered meals service for elderly people in a situation of social vulnerability is already up and running in San Javier and its districts.
The councillor for the area, Estíbaliz Masegosa, announced this new service today.

San Javier wants to be a friendly city with the elderly, a further example is the launch of the home-delivered meals service for the elderly in a situation of social vulnerability carried out by the Department of Social Rights.

The councillor for the area, Estíbaliz Masegosa, today announced this new service subsidised by the Autonomous Community through the Directorate General for Social Services and Relations with the Third Sector as part of the reinforcement projects for the basic services of primary care Social Services to deal with extraordinary situations arising from the pandemic with an amount of €30,000.

The pandemic, more specifically the confinement, brought to light problems that were not visible before, such as the poor nutrition of some elderly people due to isolation or unchosen loneliness. This prompted the Department of Social Rights to look for a way to help them.

Estíbaliz Masegosa pointed out that “it is a pilot experience in San Javier which has been in operation since last July until November”, and added that “there are 34 users of the service who are referred by the social workers themselves who detect this need in coordination with the family doctors to try to ensure that the diet of the elderly is appropriate to the health conditions in which they find themselves. The service is available in San Javier and in the districts of La Manga, El Mirador and Santiago de la Ribera”.
