Sofia is a social cooperative working in residential care services and community programs to support elderly and their professional and family carers. Sofia manages the nursing home for elderly "Le Robinie" where it hosts 45 elderly people suffering of dementia and other disabilities.
In the past years Sofia - directly and through Anziani e Non Solo, the consortium it belongs to - has been partner in several EU (Equal and LLP) and national/local projects aimed at:
- the enhancement of carers' skills (through training and validation of competences)
- the empowerment of elderly people - often former carers - working as volunteers in community based programs in favour of other, less independent, elderly
- the protection of elderly from the risk of abuse
Sofia employs a staff of 30 people with different skills and competences: social workers, nurses, assistant nurses, recreational therapists, doctors, physiotherapists, sociologists, project managers. Sofia's area of intervention is Emilia Romagna Region's western provinces.
