Adeje Ayuntamiento’s Health and Social Welfare Departments, with councillors Amada Trujillo Bencomo and Isabel Fernández González respectively, have signed an agreement renewing their commitment to the programme for “integrated care for oncology patients in Adeje”, in partnership with the Spanish cancer association, the AECC.

Both councillors said that the kind of services that the programme can offer are not part of the usual local authority services, so they sought the collaboration of the AECC to be able to provide this kind of assistance programme. Amada Trujillo Bencomo says that thanks to that commitment, “Adeje now has the necessary resources to offer help at psychological, social and health levels, both for those affected directly by cancer as well as their families. This assistance is available from the moment a diagnosis is received through treatment and operations, and, if the cancer leads to a patient death, assistance for the family is there if requested or required.

The programme is currently used by 122 persons in Adeje who are affected in some way, in particular those with reduced economic resources and who need specialised care and attention. The overall aim of the programme is to improve the health and quality of life of those affected by any type of cancer. The offices are based in the Adeje department of health, (C/Tinerfe el Grande 32, Edificio de usos multiples, 1º floor), Monday to Friday, 8am – 3pm.

Also present at the signing of the agreement were AECC provincial president Juan Julio Fernández Rodríguez, director Carlota Cobo Hernández and Maria Dolores Sebares, a member of the executive committee of the association.

The AECC is a non-profit making private organisation with offices and representatives all over Spain. It works to raise funds for investment in research and offers help to those living with and fighting cancer.
