Places of ocurrence:
Juanita Aguirre Neighborhood, Conchalí, Santiago, Chile
Municipality of Conchalí; Ciudadanas Cuidando Collective; JJVV 29 Juanita Aguirre Neighborhood; Communal Union of Older Adults
Strengthen the care network of the neighbors of the Juanita Aguirre neighborhood in the Conchalí commune.
The identity of the caregivers of the Juanita Aguirre neighborhood was reinforced through training in theoretical aspects on which they base their work, strengthening their relationship with the Neighborhood Unit of the district.
Care in the territory was strengthened by caregivers' articulation and incidence in local public policies and their approach to the Municipality of Conchalí.
A methodology that strengthens care and includes subjective and emotional dimensions developed. These aspects are transcendental for the activity of caring but also for the caregivers' self-care.
