Caring for elderly

Medical care and social support will be provided in the parishes of Santa Maria and Conceição de Tavira in the Tavira hills by the local Portuguese Red Cross association. The project, “Aproximar”, is headed by Sandra Guerreiro, who explained that a team will visit four times a week with a doctor and a nurse to ensure basic medical care for the elderly, as well as organise screenings, awareness seminars and other events.
