It is with great pleasure that we announce our project “Improve the quality of life of people who are affected with Alzheimer’s, and also their family members, through social attention, cognitive, sensorial and emotional” has been selected by the Caixa Foundation Trust within its “Programme for Help and Social Initiative Projects” with a financial aid of 11.090€.
Thanks to the signing of this agreement of collaboration between la Fundación La Caixa and AFAMUR we have been able to incorporate two new therapies in our Centre, a multisensorial room and a therapeutic garden, at the same time strengthening our service which offers orientation and social information to family members.
The multisensorial room incorporates ground breaking stimulation techniques using their senses: lights, sounds smells and textures. On the other hand, the therapeutical garden brings the older people in contact with the Murcian fields, encouraging responsibility, physical, social and cognitive stimulus and personal satisfaction.
From AFAMUR we wish to express our joy and thanks that we can continue advancing in the treatment of Alzheimer’s and other dementias, as we are continuously striving so that the sufferer has the maximum autonomous freedom, both personal and social.
