Short-term assessment and rehabilitation period for the elderly
We organise short-term institutional care for the duration of the rehabilitation or assessment of the current situation.
You may need a round-the-clock short-term assessment and rehabilitation period when your health and ability to function have deteriorated and it is necessary to assess the safety of living at home. This need may also arise suddenly. You may come for the assessment and rehabilitation period from home or from the hospital as further rehabilitation. The assessment of coping at home and rehabilitation takes place in cooperation with you and your family. The aim of the assessment and rehabilitation period is that you can return home or to your previous place of residence. You may also need short-term periods for the informal carer's holidays, which support the resources of person taking care of you. The rehabilitation and care you need will be planned in cooperation with you and the person taking care of you. The informal carer's holidays are also arranged in the case of short-term service housing units. The short-term assessment and rehabilitation period is carried out in the form of institutional care, and it includes the treatment, rehabilitation and medical care necessary for you, but also meals, medication, medical services, hygiene and care supplies, clothing, linen and laundry. The institutional care also includes transportation when it is part of your care. You are responsible for arranging transport to the rehabilitation period and back home. You have the opportunity to participate in joint activities for the residents. Personnel is present around-the-clock. During your short-term assessment and rehabilitation period, we offer you a pre-furnished room for one or multiple persons. The toilets and washing facilities may be shared by several residents. Institutional care is organised by both public and private service providers.
