Fundación Diagrama’s Socio-Healthcare Area promotes and develops centres, services, initiatives and actions aimed at satisfying the needs of every person that requires simultaneous and continuous personal and health care.
Using a model in which health is understood globally (physically, mentally and socially), these centres comprehensively attend to the psychosocial and medical needs of every group that requires this intervention: elderly people in a situation of dependency; people with a physical or mental disability; people with addiction issues; patients requiring palliative care; and people with mental health issues.
The basic principles of the Socio-Healthcare Area are as follows:
- Personalised support, in terms of the specific needs, characteristics and capabilities of the individual.
- Flexible care, adopting a dynamic approach which requires adaptation to emerging needs as they develop.
- Normalisation of an approach to daily life which takes into consideration the day-to-day needs of citizenship.
- Stimulation of the person’s capabilities, as well as protection factors and resilience.
- Promotion of the ability to choose.
- Encouragement of participation, developing activities where older people are able to take part in activities suited to their socio-cultural environment.
- Support for qualified professionals, willing to work within a team.
- Collaboration with the rest of agents involved in the care of the individual.

- Promotion of good health
- Elderly dependents
- Physically or mentally disabled people
