CASMED socio-medical homecare
CASMED has strengthened its efforts to support people in need by professional social and health care services at home, with the support of HEKS / EPER Foundation and Swiss Red Cross. In response to requests from older people and local public authorities, the model of home care services developed by CASMED was extended to 42 communities.
Partnerships were set with 16 local NGOs and 35 mayoralties in 11 northern districts. The local public authorities, except their financial contribution for the running of the home care services, came to support CASMED in identification of potential beneficiaries, premises for NGOs to implement project activities, involvement in organizing events, open communication and dialogue.
