Aimed at raising the efficiency of “Home care” project, Caritas Ukraine workers keep on involving volunteers who help to look after severely ill individuals in home conditions. For this reason volunteers need to expand their horizons in aspects of care and getting specific skills that can be implemented in first medical or social aid for the clients. That’s why Caritas Ivano-Frankivsk regularly organizes thematic studies.
“Home care” project has been carried out for more than 12 years in Ukraine and is targeted to complete fixed services that are provided by state institutions on care of isolated elderly individuals, people with disabilities, people living with HIV/AIDS, victims of totalitarian regimes. Caritas organizations services are focused on needs of ill individuals and people who need care.
