Modernisation and addition to Senior Home, Bilovec
The project aims at providing a dignified environment for seniors in the “Home for senior citizens” in Bilovec by reconstructing 9 rooms, 3 common spaces and 12 sanitary facilities and by establishing 16 additional rooms. While qualified social workers will introduce modern methods of individualized work with residents, a new service (respite care) for 3 clients will be offered. Hence, social services of high quality will be provided to elderly people in need of assistance.

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to grow rapidly, most institutions offering services for elderly people are characterized by inappropriate facilities, outdated equipment and work methods which do not correspond to the contemporary knowledge and best practices.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The “Home for Senior Citizens” in Bilovec is characterized by an outdated infrastructure which does not permit to provide social services of high quality to its residents.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 modernization and extension of the senior home as well as by introducing modern work methods which will improve the care services delivered to individual residents.
The project will finance the modernization and extension of the existing building through the construction of 16 new rooms and the renovation of 9 existing rooms, including the construction of en-suite bathrooms. Furthermore, 3 common rooms, a therapeutic room as well as barrier-free entrances and a garden will be constructed. The building will be thermally insulated (incl. new windows), and a new local waste water treatment plant will be installed. Finally, 12 employees of the Executing Agency will be trained in 4 new work methods (financed from the applicant’s own sources).
