“We are currently preparing notices within the scope of the PRR [Recovery and Resilience Plan] for home support to ensure that all people who are being monitored within the social sector regarding home support, have a tablet to ensure that they are always connected, allowing them to remain completely autonomous in their homes, but with the security of always being connected", said Ana Mendes Godinho, quoted by the Lusa agency.

The minister said that the devices will also have monitoring and follow-up services, as well as other activities that encourage attic and healthy ageing.

In response to a question from journalists about whether Social Security would “distribute a tablet with a specific program” to these people, Ana Mendes Godinho said that “it will be just like that”.
