Families of the clients
While the demographic trends indicate that the number of senior citizens will continue to grow rapidly, most institutions offering services for elderly people are characterized by inappropriate facilities, outdated equipment and work methods which do not correspond to the contemporary knowledge and best practices. This applies in particular to the disadvantaged regions in eastern Czech Republic, constituting the focus regions of the Swiss contribution. As a result, the social services delivered often do not respect appropriate standards and, thus, affect the quality of life of the residents of these institutions.
The Senior Home and the Special Needs Home in Sobotin are characterized by an outdated infrastructure which does not permit to provide social services of high quality to its residents (seniors and seniors with dementia).
The goal of the project is to provide a dignified environment for seniors by setting up a comprehensive system of high quality social care services. This shall be achieved by the introduction of an innovative and comprehensive model of work with seniors (Erwin Böhm’s Psychobiographic model) as well as by the refurbishment of the existing buildings, which will substantially improve the quality of the care services delivered to individual residents.
The project will finance: (i): Renovation of buildings II and III, including change of room layout (increase in single rooms from 24 to 41) and sanitary facilities; (ii): Thermal insulation of building III; (iii): Elaboration of methodologies of new model of work; (iv): Methodological support and training for 30 employees (financed from the applicant’s own sources)
The expected results are:
