Support to the families with hospitalized relatives

Spain

Many people must move away from home to be with their sick hospitalized relatives. Public health takes care of the patient, but not of the family. Numerous studies show that the affection and closeness of the family significantly accelerate the physical and psychological recovery of patients.

Description

The increasing specialization of health centers, a consequence of a planned distribution of high-tech resources, means that some treatments or techniques can only be carried out in very specific, reference centers. On the other hand, the increase in life expectancy and the socialization of medicine have led to complex treatments being offered to a larger population, not limiting them due to the patient's age or economic reasons.

These two realities mean that many patients from all over Catalonia, other Autonomous Communities and other countries reach the metropolitan area of ​​Barcelona. Public health takes care of the patient, but not of the family. Numerous studies show that the affection and closeness of the family significantly accelerate the physical and psychological recovery of patients.

The price of an hotel room and / or temporary rental apartment is hardly acceptable for most families, especially when this stay is extended weeks or months.

Without a resource like the one offered by the Jubert Figueras Foundation (FJF), many caregivers will spend nights in hospital corridors or sleeping in the car. The FJF currently has eight apartments, ceded or rented, near the city's major reference hospitals and areas of influence in Barcelona. The families, derived from the Social Work Units of the hospitals, will share one of these apartments.

Activities

  • Host displaced families without resources, who move to Barcelona to accompany their sick relatives.
  • Accompany and give them emotional support so that they can devote all their strength to take care of their sick family member.
  • Keep the floors in perfect condition so they can feel at home and then be in the best conditions take care of their family member.

Who will benefit?

The beneficiaries are the caregiving family of sick people:

  • displaced more than 50 km from their home,
  • without financial resources to pay for their stay in the city,
  • with a relative admitted or in treatment in a hospital in the metropolitan area.


Family members and the patient who is hospitalized are direct benifeciaries, and the pacient knows that his caregiver has the best conditions to live, rest, and recover from the long hospital days.

Project objectives

Improve the life quality of caregiving families, with few financial resources, forced to move away from their usual home to accompany the patient admitted or in treatment in a reference hospital.
