Social Affairs

The Department of Social Affairs of the Jewish Community of Madrid develops a broad program of actions, whose main objective is to ensure that older people can continue to be active and to be present in community life.

The Day Club Activities Center offers the elderly of the Community an everyday meeting space where they can share their experiences spend a pleasant time and enjoy free time. A dynamic proposal that includes workshops of gymnastics, computers, photography or crafts, taught by professionals. Thanks to these workshops, participants maintain and improve their physical, social, cognitive and psychological abilities.

The Department’s Assistance Area provides help and support to the elderly or to families that need it. With the help of the Ezrá and a network of volunteers, home visits and hospital visits are made, providing the support, follow-up and guidance required.

The professional team of the Department works continuously detecting the needs of these populations, elaborating projects and implementing new proposals.
