Food is provided by our canteen kitchen, with some components being prepared together with the residents on a daily basis. The elderly have the opportunity to participate here, according to their state of health and their abilities and interests. Alternatively, these familiar routines of a “family household” can simply be witnessed. Since we try to mobilize all of our residents, this offer is also valid for those who are in need of care and who are sitting in a wheelchair.
The structure of care and the limited size of each house community allows a high level of responsiveness to individual wishes and habits. This takes into account a continuing justified right to self-determination in old age and the associated high quality of life, even in “institutional” structures.
Our residents are accompanied by employees who see themselves as everyday companions and provide the necessary assistance. Their tasks include basic care as well as domestic tasks and psychosocial care. The employees are qualified and trained for this purpose by means of intensive further training. A sufficient number of employees with specialist nursing qualifications ensures high-quality care.
Elderly people with a care requirement of care levels 2 to 5 are admitted to these house communities. In principle, our residents can remain in the house communities until the end of their lives.
