In addition, the cost of maintaining the places of this center are included in Addendum 4 of the Dependency Agreement, therefore, they are being financed between the Cabildo and the Government of the Canary Islands and whose cost for each party amounts to 88,312.80 euros. That is, with a total cost of 176,625.60 euros.

After the visit, the authorities moved to Puerto del Rosario to visit the Residence and Day Center for dependent elderly people, a facility that consists of 107 residential places and 30 day stay places.

The president stressed that care is one of the sectors that have grown the most, also in the generation of employment, therefore, "the opening of centers like this are not only an act of social justice but also generates economy. We will continue working to have new infrastructure."
