Elderly

A Fight Against Institutionalization

The desire of the elderly is to remain home, in the environment with which they are familiar. In the last 30 years we have worked to achieve an entirely different alternative to hospitalization.

The elderly who remain at home live, heal and react better against sickness and physical weakness. On the other hand, those who are forced into a Nursing Home show an increased deterioration, both physically and psychologically, and younger deaths.

In Nursing Homes the death rate for comparable age groups is four times higher than for those who remain at home. Institutionalization is a condemnation to isolation that often takes away a willingness to live. Our service to the elderly, aims at guaranteeing and protecting the right of the elderly to stay in its own living quarters and to maintain their own sense of identity.
