The next big program for MAD-Aid is to establish a social enterprise to provide care and special services for elderly and other adults with disabilities. We aim to raise funds to refurbish an existing site and open the first modern care home in Moldova
The few state homes existing in Moldova at the moment are poorly funded and deplorable. Inadequately-appointed rooms are typically over-crowded with four to five residents.
MAD-Aid has undertaken the challenge of repairing a run-down building and establishing a residential home in Riscani, in the north of Moldova, right beside Phoenix Centre. When the interior refurbishing is completed, it will offer personalized and high-quality services to a small number of adults, 20 to 30 residents. The facilities will provide lodging of one, maximum two, adults in each private bedroom, disabled-friendly bathrooms, three meals a day, and help with daily living activities for elderly and disabled adults. There will be uplifting activities held jointly with the children attending the day care facility of Phoenix Centre.
MAD-Aid also plans to provide elderly care services on demand in the community, thereby supporting independent living.
Whether it’s a few hour’s help a week or 24-hour care, this eventually self-sustaining program aims to offer modern facilities, make available high-quality care and rehabilitation services, and provide respect and dignity for seniors.
