Comprehensive services at home

The objective of this programme is to provide a wide range of services and support for people with a disability or dependence of neurological origin and their families in their usual social and emotional environment. Attention to social and health needs is facilitated by promoting personal autonomy and quality of life, thanks to a qualified group of professionals who provide services with the quality and commitment that characterise the Institut Guttmann. The services, under the new law of dependence, can be categorised as assistance, attention to situations of dependence and promotion of autonomy. They are customised responses to the needs and preferences of the person and his/her family.
