| In-person services for this type of center will be provided by appointment and in small groups | The Murciano Institute of Social Action (IMAS) has given instructions that from this Monday, May 25, face-to-face activity will be resumed in day centers for people with disabilities, early care centers and centers for the promotion of personal autonomy of the Region, closed since last March 16 to contain the contagion of Covid-19.The IMAS has given an order to move towards the progressive recovery of activity in these centers as long as the safety and protection conditions are guaranteed for both users and workers with disabilities.As in the rest of the services for this group, in-person care will be prioritized for those users with the greatest needs and in cases with difficulties in reconciling family and work life or other situations of special need.The face-to-face care can be carried out in the center and / or in the home or environment of the users when the technical team advises, and telematic support will be maintained in those people and families who are not in situations of special need and prefer stay like this.The reactivation process of face-to-face care will be carried out gradually, attending to the characteristics of each center and adapting its evolution to the epidemiological reality of each municipality and / or health area.
It will begin with individualized attention, through appointment systems, or small groups, and progressively rotating shifts may be established to assist the center in time bands and / or alternate days, with the limit of the number of contacts allowed by the authorities.
in each phase, provided that all preventive, functional and physical-spatial measures are implemented that minimize the risk of infectious transmission.Likewise, the transport service may be restored, adapted to the security and distance measures established by the health authorities, limiting the number of users when necessary and prioritizing its use for those for whom the service is essential.Disability day centers located within a residence will continue to attend telematically or at the user's home when the technical team so determines.
The face-to-face activity in these centers is framed in more advanced phases of de-escalation.A total of 2,697 people with disabilities are users of the 58 day centers in the Region of Murcia and 200 of them are services for the promotion of personal autonomy.
In early care, there are 33 centers that provide these services for a total of 4,447 minors.
