More than six hundred disabled and / or dependent people over the city can adapt their homes and continue to live in them
To some extent, everyone agrees with the sentence: “Home sweet home”, especially when it comes to dependent and / or disabled elders. In order to avoid these people leaving their homes and moving to a residence because of their situation, the City Council of Barcelona reached an agreement with the Association of Independent Life. 800,000 euros will be dedicated to different interventions, such as handrails, ramps and other adaptations to improve mobility, to suit the needs of these elders.
