Madrid

13 Jun

In Madrid, nobody has received still no service or benefit of the Law Dependency, approved in 2006 by the Spanish Parliament. This is the denunciation of the Socialist Party (PSOE), impeller of which that norm was approved. In the capital of Spain, more than 23,000 people they would be in situation of serious dependency and, therefore, they would have to be first in receiving supports through the Law. Nevertheless, according to denunciation the political party, only a 3% of files has begun. In the rest of Spain, already they are more than 130,000 people those that receive aid and suitable services to their situation of dependency. The Law of Dependency appeared like the recognition of a human right: to accede to the cares necessary to have a worthy life.

Thousands of people we applauded this norm that became Fourth Pillar of the State of well-being, next to the education, to the health and the pensions. Nevertheless, the political interests of the parties, the Independent Communities, etc. have prevailed over rights which they need plus it. Once again, the differences between the political class cause that the citizens are the one who pay to the broken plates. This situation causes that the Spanish citizens are not equal and who their rights are not the same according to in the territory in which they are. Thus, an Andalusian or dependent frontier dweller is not equal to another Madrilenian. The difference: first already they receive aid and services by its situation and the Madrilenian, not yet. The benefits that the Law contemplates at home include aid, tele-help, construction of new centers by day, more places in residences and aid to the families who completely dedicate themselves to take care of of their disabled patients, majors or. In Spain, more of a million people they cannot merit by themselves and less than 7% of the families who took care of dependent people received some type of support of the Public Administration before the Law of Dependency entered in force.
