  • O Alzheimer-Vigo Beiramar Specialized Day Center is the first center of the public network that was opened in Galicia.

 

The president of Afaga Alzheimer, Juan Carlos Rodríguez Bernárdez, received this morning the visit of the president of the Vigo Port Authority, Jesús Vázquez Almuiña, in the vicinity of the specialized Alzheimer-Vigo Beiramar Day Center.

This center, which lacks an outdoor patio, is located in the middle of the port area, therefore, the president of Afaga Alzheimer, among other issues related to the relationship between the needs of the day center and the port, took advantage of the visit to raise the possibility to enable an outdoor space for the use of all citizens, and that in this way allows to give an air to the users of the center so that they use it as a recreation area.

On this occasion, Juan Carlos Rodríguez Bernárdez also explained the work dynamics carried out by Afaga Alzheimer professionals, the main characteristics and the response they gave during the pandemic, since the Alzheimer-Vigo Beiramar Specialized Day Center was the the only one in the health area of ​​Vigo that was kept open continuously in full confinement, and thus delivered a response to the needs of users, even carrying out interventions in homes.

The Alzheimer-Vigo Beiramar Specialized Day Center is the first center of the public network that was opened in Galicia.
