Presentation of the Manual "Social Work in Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative dementias"
20/9/2017

Taking advantage of the fact that this is the month of Alzheimer's, and just like last year, the Alzhéimer Galicia Federation organizes the presentation of the Manual "Social Work in Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative dementias". This manual was prepared by the Working Group of Social Workers of FAGAL, created in 2016 and made up of professionals from the Galician associations.

The purpose of this manual is to be a reference for social workers in the socio-medical area specialized in dementia, and to unify criteria in the care and intervention of people with Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative dementias as well as with their relatives.

This presentation will be made in the week of World Alzheimer's Day, on Wednesday, September 20 at 17h in the Sociocultural Center of the Ensanche, in Santiago de Compostela. The authors of the manual and the president of FAGAL, Juan Carlos Rodríguez Bernárdez, will attend.


II Solidarity Walk of FAGAL

II Solidarity Walk of FAGAL
16/9/2017
This Second Solidarity Walk will take place on Saturday, September 16th. Just like last year, we will take the last section of the Way to reach the Space of Memory, in the Park of Bonaval. This walk, although the main audience is the caregiver families and members of our associations, will be open to the general population, who can join this activity and complete with us the approximately 4 km that separate the starting point of the route of the Space of the Memory.

The activity will begin at 11am at the Monument to John Paul II, located on Gozo Street. Attendees are requested to be present in this area at 10:30 am to explain the route to be performed and the schedules for the event in the Park of Bonaval.

ROUTE

The walk will have a duration of 5.5km and it is estimated that it will take around 1 hour and 40 minutes, crossing the following streets of the city: Rúa das Estrelas, Camiño San Martiño de Aríns, Avda Fernando Casas Novoa, Rúa Miguel Ferro Caaveiro, Rúa San Lázaro, Rúa Valiño, Rúa das Fontiñas , Rúa Fonte dos Concheiros, Cruce de Lugo, Rúa dos Concheiros, Rúa de San Pedro, Travesa de San Pedro, Rúa do Meio and Rúa de Bonaval. The entrance to the Park will be made by the side entrance located in that street.

This year the first stretch of the Walk is modified due to the works being carried out in the Ponte de San Lázaro Street, which prevents the passage of vehicles and pedestrians, so the duration of the Walk will be greater.



ACT IN THE PARK OF BONAVAL

After the Walk, an event will be held in the Space of Memory, located in the northern part of the Bonaval Park, an event that will have the presence of political figures and members of the Board of Directors of the Federation Alzhéimer Galicia. The act is set for 13h.
