The Zosimades Ioannina Care Home was founded in 1926 with the aim to provide shelter and care to the elderly residents of Ioannina. It is the only nonprofit care home in the prefecture of Ioannina but its residents come from the vast Epirus region. The care home is divided in two sections: one section accommodates over 100 autonomous elders while the other section operates as a Chronic Illness Therapy Clinic housing approximately 50 patients, the vast majority of which is over the age of 65.
The grant regards the provision of medical supplies and daily consumables for the elders residing at the care home. The need for medical supplies includes medication as well as consumables that the elders’ public insurance plans do not cover.
