On the meeting held on 4.12.2019. we tried to emphasize the need for mutual help for the elderly and sick members of our community. ZIK Volunteers Dr. Ljubica Tucaković, prof. Olga Friscic and soc.ped. Snježana Lončarić prepared a lecture on Alzheimer's disease where they tried to describe and familiarize Council members with the basic medical, psychological and social aspects of the disease, its prevalence in the country and the world, and the poor prognosis that scientists predict in terms of a large increase in the number of patients.
They also presented the steps our country has taken to combat this wicked disease.
The current lack of care and assistance to patients and their families at the level of our city and the entire state were pointed out to accomplish better awareness.
Finally, the Council's representatives were briefed on the work, mission and plans of the "Ivan´s House Foundation", established to assist their loved ones.
Further cooperation has been agreed between ZIK volunteers and the Local Committees. We look forward to such cooperation and promoting the end goal in the form of social inclusion and a better quality of life for fellow citizens of Alzheimer's and other dementias and to help their families.
In the area of the town market in Kutina IVAN'S HOUSE FOUNDATION and the volunteers with pastor Mariano prepared the commemorative exhibition program to remind citizens that September 21. is WORLD ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE DAY.
