Llorca has indicated that this aid program is aimed at “paying for the assistance expenses that dependent people or people with special needs have at home, so that they can remain in their usual environment and have greater autonomy, as well as improve their quality. of life, since they receive personal help or domestic help ”.
To be a beneficiary of these grants "it is essential to reside in Benidorm, be registered for at least one year and have a favorable opinion from the Assessment Commission of the Department of Social Welfare." This commission will be the one that sets, case by case, the number of subsidized hours of the program, the tasks that are included, the intensity and duration of the home care and the total amount of the aid.
The beneficiary must present an “evident and verifiable” need for support at home in order to exercise their autonomy that allows them to continue in their usual environment.
