A new initiative seeks to improve the quality of life of patients with chronic kidney disease in small towns throughout the province of Malaga.
The Malaga Provincial Council, through the Delegation for the Elderly, Non-Profit Sector and International Cooperation, is promoting a project being carried out by the Association for the Fight against Kidney Diseases (ALCER) to improve the quality of life of people suffering from chronic kidney disease and their families. The announcement was made on May 13.
The project is being carried out in the municipalities of Ardales, Alcaucín, Pizarra, Benaoján, Casares, Arriate, Riogordo, Archidona, Canillas de Albaida and Cortes de la Frontera, all of which have fewer than 20,000 inhabitants.
The initiative will provide people diagnosed with CKD (chronic kidney disease) with tools to promote self-care and personal autonomy through healthy lifestyle habits.
For years, ALCER has been working to bring such services to kidney patients and their families in the small towns of the province. Also, as they are aware of the increasing importance of digital services, they have developed an app for psychological, social, nutritional and physiotherapeutic services, which also includes workshops and online training sessions.
