Day activities for the elderly

Day activities are preventative activities that also support rehabilitation and promote the functional abilities, mental agility and social relationships of the elderly.

The primary purpose of the day activities is to support clients with memory disorders and/ or are in informal care, in order to enable living at home, to maintain their independence and remain independent or have supported functionality. In addition, the day activities contribute to the well-being of the customer's relatives and caretakers.

Day activities are goal-oriented and, therefore, a personal care and service plan is made for each customer. The functional abilities of the customer are maintained through daily exercise, outdoor activities and socio-cultural activities.

The service is applied for by calling the Senior Info.

Day activities are organised in the city's own units and purchased service units. The customer fee is €17.90, including a group transport, meals and the activities defined in the care and service plan.

If the customer can alternatively choose a service voucher for day activities.
