Moscow – Children’s Club charity program has been set up in Moscow as part of ‘Attention and Care’ non-profit school of nursing care. Its aim is to supporti parents who care for children with severe movement disorders, reports the Russian news site DISLIFE. As part of the program, parents will be taught modern techniques of movement and get help to choose the best technical equipment for rehabilitation. The programme also provides emotional support and rehabilitation assistance to those parents who have back problems due to daily exertion.
“When a child with severe movement disorders appears in the family, parents and most often mothers become his/her arms and legs. At the same time, no one teaches them the correct techniques for moving and positioning a child, although the quality of life of both children and parents largely depends on this, ”says Olga Beketova, director of ‘Attention and Care’ School.
Training is conducted by specialists in physical therapy and rehabilitation. School programs are based on the German system of nursing care.
All types of support are provided free of charge. Parents can enrol to get help on the program page on the School’s ‘Attention and Care’ page.
