DELGADO MORALES, Juan Francisco. Contribution to the psychology to the promotion of personal autonomy and protection to dependence: the experience of the Diputacion of Grenade. Intervención Psicosocial [online]. 2007, vol.16, n.1, pp.23-42. ISSN 1132-0559.
The present work seeks to analyse the vast experience accumulated by the Local Corporations in the Services of Promotion of Personal autonomy and Protection to situations of Dependency. Those thirty years of performance of the Social Services in the Democratic city councils and the later development of the Concerted Plan as an incipient, although weak, protection system to the situations of dependency, has already supposed the accumulation of experiences in the planning, administration and evaluation of the resources that now are settled down in the new Law as a positive right, which orders and guarantees the financing by the State Funds. It represents a very important advance that, however, makes our country to face great challenges to be in the same level of other next countries: the resources settled down by the Law in the services catalogue of an Integral Individual Plan of Attention, the application of the access system keeping in mind the experience of professionals and Local Institutions, the indicators of levels of autonomy and their direct relationship - and correspondence in frequency, intensity and duration. One of the challenges is the need to establish a procedure of care coordination. Concrete formulas are proposed based on valid experiences in different territories that can help in such undertaking. Likewise, we are advancing in the necessity to stabilize the financial system through a model of financing that goes beyond an agreement of minima and that could overcomes the inconveniences of the Concerted Plan of Social Services. Finally, we bet for the reorganization of the Community and specialized social services; necessary reorganization due the changes introduced by the Law. These changes imply a most important role of the local Corporations in management, recognition of their services and the community reorientation of those services delivered by the Autonomous Communities. In summary an advance of our State of Well-being largely expected and greeted with enthusiasm by the professionals involved, and recognition of the challenges that must be confronted in next years.
