The European SALTO project – Social Action for Life quality training and Tools – is based on the need for social and health professionals to adapt in order to provide support and accompaniment to dependent elderly people and people with functional diversity, particularly those affected by dementias such as Alzheimer’s disease, autistic spectrum disorders or psychiatric disorders.
The SALTO project aims to respond to the psychosocial needs of these people, complementing the care and treatment they receive. The aim is to improve their quality of life with a multidisciplinary therapeutic approach that allows the development and preservation of physical, psychological, cognitive and social skills.
The objective of SALTO is to improve the quality of life of older people in need of support and people with functional diversity through:
- Promotion of care and alternative support approaches
- Integration of social action in a therapeutic dimension
- Development of physical, psychological, cognitive and social skills
