5 mobile teams trained in case management

In period of September 18-20th, 2017 MCA organized 5 seminars on the topic “Case Management for the elderly”. The activities took place in 5 communities in the north of Moldova which participate in the program “Strengthening advocacy capacities of the local CSOs to support vulnerable elderly in rural areas of Moldova”. The mobile teams that gathered in Alexandreni, Coteala, Edinet, Rotunda and Varatic consisted of the priest, social workers, adult and young volunteers. The seminars were facilitated by an expert in social work and sociology Mihai Nani.

During the seminars 58 participants learnt and discussed the statistical data revealing the situation of the elderly people in the country on the whole and in their communities in particular. Afterwards, the social workers reported on the 5 cases of the elderly people from each location that are in need of the community’s intervention and help. The young volunteers presented the personal data of the people under concern as well as information about their living conditions and social relations with the environment. Based on this data the team followed with working on the intervention plan for each of the elderly beneficiaries paying attention to the concrete steps and expected results.

As the result of the seminar the participants got a better understanding of the essence of case management as a tool and the actions to be taken to implement it for the elderly beneficiaries.
