Canarias reduce el limbo de la dependencia un 28,9 %, pero sigue a la cola

The Canary Islands have managed to reduce the waiting list for neglected dependents by 28.9% and 2,879 people, known as “limbo”, although it continues to have the fourth worst rate in this indicator in all of Spain and continues to be at the bottom in terms of coverage rate.

This is revealed in an opinion of the Dependency Observatory that has been made public this Friday and which also points out that on the islands the number of people served has increased by 2,512, 7.80% more, somewhat above the average for the rest. of communities (7.47%).

“If the good rate of attention last year continues, the Canary Islands would take more than 2.5 years to attend the waiting list of the 7,071 dependent people,” says the report, which adds that 2,097 new jobs have also been generated as a result. of the additional financing included in the “Shock Plan”.

On the other hand, between December 2021 and November 2022, 3,203 people on the waiting list died, without being attended to, a number that has decreased by 37.53% to stand at 169.3 unattended people for every 1,000 people with a recognized right.

Even so, a differential of 42.3% is maintained, higher than the national average, located at 119 neglected people for every 1,000 entitlements.

“This has contributed notably to the reduction of the waiting list, so much so that of the 2,376 people who have left the waiting list for benefit resolution as of November 2022, 57.07% have done so as a result of a death and not due to the management of the autonomous community”, the report states.

Likewise, the archipelago closed the year with 9,918 new benefits and increased telecare by 8%.

The Service-Linked Economic Benefit (PEVS) accounts for 31.1% of the Canary Islands service portfolio (compared to 10.84% ​​nationally) and serves more than 12,018 dependents with an average monthly cost of 399.49 euros in the subtypes of residential care and Home Help.

The PEVS offered this year have been allocated to the subtypes of Home Help and Residential Care and already occupy 31.1% of the Canarian service portfolio (compared to 10.84% ​​nationally), providing care to more than 12,018 dependent people which are attended with an average monthly cost of 399.49 euros in terms similar to the average 411 euros allocated by the rest of the Autonomous Communities.

The Canary Islands still maintain very low percentages in fundamental services such as telecare (4.7%) and an almost non-existent direct home help (1.2%) “although we must take into account the 8,253 PEVS that were actually allocated to Home Help subtype”.

The average public expenditure per dependent person in the Canary Islands (5,086.2 euros) once again moves away from the national average (6,131.6 euros) with a differential of -17.0%.

In addition, public spending per inhabitant (71.4 euros) is more than 91 euros apart from the average (-56%) “as a result of the meager coverage rate that the Canary Islands still continues to show, of 15.97 individual programs service (PIAS) per thousand inhabitants, compared to the national average of 27.72 PIAS/1,000 inhabitants”, concludes the report.
