Castilla y León has developed a model of care for dependency situations characterized primarily
by its full integration into the social services system, respecting the powers held in it by local corporations.
Administrative simplification and flexibility in the processing of applications, social consensus
and a clear commitment to professionalize services to prevent the system from becoming
a subsidy regime are some of the keys. Steps have been taken to enable people to access services
and make them more attractive, such as promoting the use of tied aid, or the “At home” project
that transforms traditional homes into multiservice centres and cohabitation units. This model has
yielded good results and is intended to be an engine of economic development. Finally it is proposed
that, to ensure the future stability of the system, the financing of dependency is integrated
into the state model of regional financing.
