Karus ta’ Mħabba (A Moneybox representing a chain of LOVE)

Id-Dar tal-Providenza has special coin boxes for children that are distributed in schools and parishes during Lent in which they can save some money in aid of the Home.

With each moneybox we give a leaflet explaining that the money collected will be used for the inclusion of persons with disability to have equal opportunities and live in an environment, where they can love and be loved, learn and share their experiences with others, grow together in faith, work and enjoy life like other human beings.

We also explain that this initiative is just a drop in the ocean of what we can do in favour of persons with disability.

Schools and parishes that want to participate in this ‘Chain of Love’ can call us on 21462844 or 21464915 or contact us by email on info@dartalprovidenza.org

Physiotherapy Services

The sole aim of physiotherapy is to help the person regain the movement and functions of the normal body in case of sickness, an accident or disability. The physiotherapy services at the Home focus on the situation of the particular resident. Apart from the treatment of the problem, physiotherapy might suggest things that can be done on a daily basis to maximise the ability of the resident to move and control the pain in the joints, muscles and bones. It also helps to improve the amount of movement so that the resident is healthier and happy.

The physiotherapists assess and improve the movement and function of the body, with particular attention to physical mobility, balance, tiredness and pain. These professionals also assess the need for types of wheelchairs the residents might need.
