Director of RedELEAM receives “Mujeres que inspiran” award (Women who inspire)

The director of RedELEAM, María Soledad Alcalde, was recognized with the Women who Inspire 2023 award, which is granted each year by Banco de Chile. This initiative seeks to promote social leaders and micro-entrepreneurs, who help society through agile and innovative solutions.

Last board meeting of the year

In December, the last RedELEAM board meeting was held, together with the consulting council, an occasion on which the most important milestones and activities of the year were reviewed, which made it possible to provide support to homes in different instances. Also, the challenges for 2024 were established, with the aim of continuing to promote and contribute to a more dignified system of care, attention and accompaniment.

AMD Activity

Residents of CONAPRAN’s Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles Home painted and decorated labels that adorn all purchases made in AMD solidary stores.
It was a very entertaining activity with much camaraderie, in which the residents displayed their best artistic skills.

Academy

In collaboration with AIEP, students and teachers from the Social Work program carried out recreational and stimulation activities with residents and collaborators of the ELEAM Paula home, in the Municipality of Puente Alto. In addition, during these visits they beautified and improved the home’s green areas.

Together with the ENAC Technical Training Center, RedELEAM collaborators visited the ELEAM Betania home in Santiago Centro. The objective of the meeting was to identify their needs and find opportunities for collaboration through the development of activities and interventions carried out by AIEP’s departments, offering a solution or correcting the gaps they present.
The initiative will begin in January 2024 with one ELEAM home, and then replicated in other homes registered in the network during the rest of the year.

Volunteer work

In collaboration with the Preunic Beauty Institute, volunteers visited the ELEAM Providencia home to perform personal grooming interventions, such as nail painting and haircuts.
It was an afternoon of conversations and memories, where residents shared New Year’s stories and how they liked to prepare to ring out the old and ring in the new year when they were younger.
This was the first volunteer activity with the Beauty Institute, which will continue during the year with interns at more RedELEAM homes.

Donations

During December, ELEAM homes in the municipalities of Ñuñoa, Macul, Las Condes, Independencia and Buin received donations of masks, alcohol gel, clothing, uniforms and furniture.
