‘Cuidado y Salud’ Home Support Services

Fundación Diagrama’s ‘Cuidado y Salud’ (Care and Health) Home Support Services offer assistance available in the home, so that individuals and their families can retain a certain level of independence as far as possible, thus improving their quality of life.

This service is aimed towards the elderly, people with a disability, families with particular needs, parents trying to maintain a work/family balance, and any other individual experiencing reduced personal independence on a temporary or permanent basis, who therefore requires support to carry out basic, day-to-day activities.

All our professionals have vast experience when it comes to home care, and they have the required qualifications for each position. Furthermore, Fundación Diagrama facilitates their continuous training and development, such that they carry out their work in the best way possible within a framework of good practices, always focused on the user.

Currently, our Home Support Services are accredited in the Region of Murcia, the Valencian Community and the province of Seville, offering the following services:

Preventative measures against COVID-19

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fundación Diagrama has started up a new self-protection plan which is being added to the existing ones. This plan has been developed according to the recommendations of the health authorities, and a group of protection and security measures are compiled within it which have been adopted in all of the centres, programmes and services which the organisation manages, including the ‘Cuidado y Salud’ Home Support services.

The goal of this new plan is to avoid the spreading of infections and to protect the health and security of the workers and the people they look after.

Amongst the established preventative and protective measures for our team of professionals directly focused on assistance in the home, are the following:

  • Initial hand hygiene and taking body temperature:
    - Of the assisted person when the professional arrives at the home.
    - Of the professional upon leaving the home.
  • Training and specific information for the workers with respect to COVID-19.
  • The use of Individual Protection Teams (IPT) suited to the risk of exposure to COVID-19:
    - Respiratory protection (face mask).
    - Disposable protective clothing (gloves and lab coat).
    - Standard-issue footwear which will be put on at the entrance to the home, disinfected at the exit and not used when walking out onto the street.
    - Scrub jacket for each assisted person, which will be washed after each session.
    - Safety goggles.
  • Frequent handwashing and use of alcoholic gel.
  • Cleaning and disinfection of surfaces and materials used during the home visit.
  • Maintenance of safe distance with the assisted people using the service.
