Summary

San Jose Home is a residence for elderly people who struggle with loneliness and lack the necessary care for everyday life. Most residents, over 90% women, have no family, and many have lived here for over 15 years. Some of the residents also need special care because of underlying conditions or disabilities that prevent them from completing everyday tasks. A dedicated team of doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and nutritionists works around the clock to provide 24/7 intensive care.

Challenge

In Argentina, 4 in 10 people are 'poor', with a disproportionate impact on vulnerable demographics, particularly children, women, and the elderly. Within this demographic, seniors face an even more precarious situation as they become entirely vulnerable when stripped of essential rights such as retirement benefits, pensions, and access to health insurance. This underscores the urgent need for spaces like San Jose Home, where elderly individuals find love, care, and a sense of belonging.

Solution

The Home not only responds to the physiological and physical needs of the participants but also promotes the subjects' emotional well-being and mental health through different recreational workshops and medical follow-ups, among other services. With the funds raised from this project, we will ensure the Home is in optimal condition to keep working as effectively as it has for many decades, as well as provide the daily resources needed for the residents such as food, medicine, and bedding.

Long-Term Impact

San Jose Home is a place that has honored the tradition of respecting and caring for older adults for more than 80 years. Not only are we providing socially vulnerable people with a loving Home, but we are also preserving their history. We are committed to guarding their dignity and protecting them from any risk that directly affects them, as well as offering opportunities for enrichment in their golden years.
