More than 11,300 people in Malaga province are using the Equality and Social Wellbeing’s home assistance service, out of a total of just over 75,000 people in Andalucia as a whole. Figures show that eight out of ten people who have the “panic button” are over 75, 82% are women and two thirds live alone. The service started a year ago when the Law to Promote Personal Autonomy and Attention to People in a Situation of Dependence came into force. More details about the service are available on 902 50 65 65, at the Provincial Delegation of Social Wellbeing in Malaga or on the web page juntadeandalucia.es/fundaciondeserviciossociales.
