Minister Yanık emphasized that they developed policies for disabled citizens in line with their family-oriented social service vision. Burns said, “One of our primary goals is to support our disabled citizens in need of care with their families. We provide care services in institutions to our disabled citizens who cannot live on their own and cannot be cared for with their families. We support disabled people living with their families with service models such as day care and home care assistance. With home care assistance, we also support our citizens who have a severely disabled relative who needs care and cannot work because they take care of them.”
