Secure safes were installed in the rooms of the Floriana residence for the elderly, along with additional cameras in the home’s public spaces.
In a statement, Parliamentary Secretary for Active Ageing Anthony Agius Decelis explained that the residents can choose to used the safe to keep small amounts of money and personal items.
In order to use this safe, residents can fill in an application and it will be installed in their rooms. In the case of difficulties, a number to contact the people responsible will be provided.
Decelis thanked the Welfare Committee for seeing to the implementation of this initiative. He insisted that this is a pilot project that, if successful, may be in all residential homes in Malta and Gozo.
