Summary

For more than 12 years "Enjoyable Ageing" has been supporting about 350 care homes in 50 regions of Russia. We strove for better quality of life for residents as well as for making care homes more open and comfortable to live in. And it worked until the pandemic changed everything in just a few days. Most care homes went on lockdown leaving elderly residents isolated, and many members of staff fell ill. Those who keep working experience critical shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Challenge

To date, the charity supports about 100 care homes affected by the virus but, sadly, much more help is required while the situation keeps getting worse. Care homes need PPE, disinfectants and, most importantly, staff to provide best possible care.We do everything we can to help: recruit and pay staff,provide supply of disinfectants and equipment, ensure care in hospitals, fund incentives for employees on stay-in shifts.This entails considerable expenditure which can turn out beyond our resources

Solution

Most care homes are densely populated with most vulnerable people, so ensuring the residents stay safe through the pandemic is our top priority. To guarantee that, our organisation needs to regularly buy and deliver PPE, disinfectants, hygienic products and equipment, to boost staff numbers and pay their wages, arrange case management and quality personal care for hospitalised residents. But given the ever-expanding scale of the problem, previously planned resources are not enough anymore.

Long-Term Impact

We hope that with the necessary support at this time of need we will be able to preserve and extend the quality and quantity of help we provide for our elderly beneficiaries. People's physical and mental health will not worsen due to lack of basic care while all resources are being invested into fighting the coronavirus. And after that, in the longer term, the quality of life of care home residents will be preserved and improved.
