The "Larrain" Association of Elderly People of Barañain is organising "Conversations on care" which will take place at the Casa de Kultura in Barañain and in which our colleagues Nerea Etxaniz and Virginia Oliván, researchers at the Matia Institute, will take part.

The two experts in ageing and care will talk about the desire of the elderly to continue living at home when they need care and whether this is possible with the current model of care and the current model of society.

The first of the talks will take place on Thursday 3 November from 18:00 to 20:30, with the following questions on the table: How do we want to be cared for when we need help, whose responsibility is it to care, what role does the community have in care, and what is the role of the community in care?

The second meeting, on Wednesday 9 November at the same time, will address the question that often accompanies the appearance of a situation of dependency: What if we can no longer live at home? do we want to go to live in a nursing home as we know it today? what other alternatives do we have?

Limited capacity.
