Residential and care services

Service Description

Age-appropriate housing
are designed to meet the needs of older people and enable them to lead a life without obstacles. This is achieved through barrier-free access to the apartment and barrier-free design in the living area, such as elevators, ramps, stair elevators, wheelchair-accessible sanitary and kitchen facilities, grab bars in the bathroom and toilet, and slip-resistant floor coverings.
There are various ways to finance appropriate housing adaptation measures.
In addition, there are housing complexes for older people, often in conjunction with service offerings, care options and nursing facilities.

Outpatient care services/home care:
