The Centre Riudeperes, a service and accommodation was created in 1974, with an initial capacity for 17 people, dedicated to the attention of people with intellectual disabilities and with needs for generalized support. It was the first service of these features that existed in the county of Osona and the only one at present. Later it assisted 21 people.
With the years, the need of a residential home in the county of Osona for the attention of people with intellectual disabilities and with needs for generalized support became more and more clear, which worried the Entity as it didn’t have the resources to give response to the real needs of the county.
Between 1980 and 1984, we started to ask the Department of Sanity and Social Security the coverage of such necessity. During 1990 the executive architectonic project building of the Residence was elaborated with the collaboration of the technical services of the Catalan Institute of Assistance and Social Services and of the Ministry of Social Welfare. In 1991 the building of the residence began.
On the 26th April 1999, the Centre Riudeperes opened its doors as a service of residential and daily housing. At present, the service of residential housing has a capacity of 56 places and the capacity of the daily housing service is of 7 places. In total, the number of assisted people is 63. For the attention of these people the centre has a team of people formed by approximately 85 professionals.
