Harmony Home Vsetin
The project aims at providing a dignified environment for seniors in the “Home for seniors Ohrada” by reconstructing 17 rooms, common spaces and common sanitary facilities and by establishing 12 additional rooms. While qualified social workers will introduce modern methods of individualized work with residents, the capacity of the home will be increased by 10 places. A wide range of social activities will be offered to residents and the local community, which will further increase the quality of social services provided.

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to grow rapidly, most institutions offering services for elderly people are characterized by inappropriate facilities, outdated equipment and work methods which do not correspond to the contemporary knowledge and best practices.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The “Home for seniors Ohrada” in Vsetin is characterized by an outdated infrastructure which does not permit to provide social services of high quality to its residents.
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 provision of a wide range of social activities for seniors, by the extension and reconstruction of the existing building as well as by introducing additional state-of-the-art work methods which will improve the care services delivered to individual residents
