The clients of social services facilities in both regions are very often not only mentally disabled but also physically disabled people. Clients who are served and/or live in these places usually suffer from serious or incurable diseases. In order to improve the healthcare provided to them it is necessary to improve skills and knowledge of social care services facilities’ staff as well as to create better conditions for activities and therapies in social care services facilities.
Košice Self-governing Region is the founder of 13 social services facilities but it also supports more than 250 social services facilities of private ownership. The city of
Uzhhorod cares about people with special needs, through the work of social objects organizations of various forms of ownership, including public and charitable organizations.
Facilities on both sides of the border include clients with Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, pervasive developmental disorder, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, dementia of a different type of aetiology, deaf blindness, and AIDS. Organizations on SK side provide not only social services but also nursing care to clients, however, this situation puts higher demand on the employees of the facility, their education and competences. Especially UA organizations do not have enough of the necessary material and technical basis for the implementation of quality services in the sphere of health care, rehabilitation, provision of basic needs and supporting the health of clients.
