Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Elderly men in government owned care homes or in homes which are covered by a public-private partnership have received a gift for Father’s Day, on initiative of the Welfare Committee within the Active Ageing Parliamentary Secretariat.

People were allowed to visit elderly relatives in care homes from 18 June. Visitors were not required to stay behind a perspex and could give gifts ahead of Father’s Day. The presents were then quarantined before they were delivered to the recipient.

Parliamentary Secretary for active ageing Silvio Parnis visited several elderly care homes on Father’s Day. He remarked that the new measures will allow relatives to see their elderly relatives at these residents.
