The project incorporates the care of live-alone older persons and families in need and aims to provide worthy and adequate services for them.
SSK's homecare team consists of five people. According to its strategy, SSK aims at strengthening the capacities of unemployed IDPs through employment. Thus, 90% of homecare team members are IDPs.
SSK homecare center cares for a total of 122 beneficiaries in the city of Gori and in the adjacent villages. The service is provided since 2014 and is financed by the local administration.
Homecare follows severe qualitative standards and includes the following directions:
Assistance maintaining body care, nutrition, and appearance in main daily living needs.
Carrying out procedures that require the competency of a generally qualified nurse (ex. insulin injection, change of catheter, change of bandages, measurement of blood pressure, provision of medicines, assistance, and control of doctor’s prescriptions).
Assistance with family logistics like the procurement of day-to-day products, cleaning of living space, and cooking.
Consultations and primary interviews; giving advice on assistance and offering legal and social consultation on active rights (social aid, monetary bonuses, benefits, property interests, etc.) of targeted groups.
Our organization has selected and trained nurses and social assistants who systematically visit and freely assist elderly people in solving medical, living, and social problems. The frequency of their visits depends on individual beneficiaries’ needs (approximately twice a week).
Currently, we provide this service to 90 beneficiaries in Gori.
Since 2020, the SSK homecare team started delivering food to 32 families in need in the villages nearby Gori. This project is financed by the Gori municipality.
