Porreres day centre

The last phase of the work on what will be the first-day centre in Porreres has begun, which consists of carpentry work (the installation of windows and doors), the connection of the electrical system and finishing the final touches. The new day centre will offer 30 places, most of which will be integrated into the Public Network of Care for Dependency. The project has a cost of 600,000 euros, 50% of which will be provided by the Department of Social Affairs and Sports and the rest in equal parts by the Mallorcan Institute of Social Affairs (IMAS) and Porreres Town Council.

The councillor Fina Santiago visited the works with the councillor for Social Rights of the Consell de Mallorca and president of IMAS, Sofia Alonso, and the mayor of Porreres, Xisca Mora, accompanied by the director general of Planning, Training and Equipment, Juan Manuel Rosa, and the manager of the Consortium of Social, Health and Welfare Resources of the Balearic Islands, Juan Manuel Martínez.

The Regional Ministry of Social Affairs will allocate around 200,000 euros each year to finance the arrangement of places reserved for the care of the dependent population and will provide direct employment for 10 workers.

The ground floor of the former parish residence for the elderly in Porreres, Can Ses Monges, which has a total surface area of 397m2, has been partially refurbished and adapted. It has a multi-purpose room, a rest room and a kitchen, which are directly connected to the outdoor space of the courtyard, where there is an outdoor gazebo as a transition and living space for users. It maintains access to the existing chapel and will provide a space for exchanging material and information with users and relatives.
