Time for Yourself

 

Time management is a factor that directly affects the quality of life of citizens. From the Time and Care Economics Program, the Municipal Institute of People with Disabilities, the Department of Older Persons and the Districts of the city, we want to promote this project to contribute to the improvement of family, work and personal reconciliation of families . We are aware that the availability of time is a sensitive issue, affecting the whole world, becoming in some cases a factor of social inequality or gender. These realities make necessary measures of promotion and support to the families, especially those that count among their members with people with some type of dependency.

This project, aimed at caregivers and caregivers with people with dependents in charge, began in 2011 with a pilot plan in the district of San Martín and has three lines of action: one addressed to caregivers of children with disabilities, the other to Youth and adults with disabilities and the last to caregivers of people with dependency.

From January 2017, the modalities of the time for you program related to caregivers of children with disabilities, and youth and adults with disabilities are managed by the Municipal Institute of People with Disabilities -IMPD

The contact address of the project: tempspertu@bcn.cat

The modality directed to caregivers of people with dependency, is managed by the Department of Elderly, of the Area of ​​Social Rights.

Promoted activities

The program provides personal time to families in charge of children with some type of dependency. The goal is to improve the quality of life of the entire family by providing more personal time to parents and leisure time to their children.

The aging of the population very often implies a loss of independence for the elderly and a pressing need to provide them with care. In trying to palliate those circumstances, the program offers more personal time to caretakers while it provides suited activities to the dependent elderly.

This project aims to provide tools for time management to youth and adults with disabilities, guaranteeing their right to leisure time and entertainment, while offering personal time to their families.
