Caritas provides services to close to 40,000 elderly individuals. The objectives of these programs are to provide the elderly with productive activities, and to supplement their nutrition and basic needs.
Services include meals, laundry, hygiene, sewing workshops, arts and crafts workshops, cultural and recreational activities. Most of the programs that Friends of Caritas Cubana have visited are in homes or in churches. All programs include at least one meal. Home-bound individuals receive their meals at home, usually delivered by another elderly person, who spends time visiting.
