PALMA’S Council has launched a course to train non-professional dependant patients’ carers.
Together with the Social Services Institute of Mallorca (IMAS) and the Health Centre Escuela Graduada, the council has offered this course free of cost to non-professional home carers, in order to train them, support them and guide them.
The courses will take place on April 13, 20, 27 and May 4, 11 and 18, between 10am and 11.30am at the Flassders Centre.
According to the councillor for Education, Family, Senior Citizens and Immigration, Sebastia Sanso, the course seeks to help improve the quality of life of non-professional carers, their capacity and the services they provide to dependant relatives or patients.
The course intends to provide these workers with professional and psychological knowledge, through behavioural modification to help reduce negative emotions.
