The services have been planned with consideration of the real needs of senior citizens. The services need to be of high quality, accessible for the target group and offered as close to home as possible. Currently, for example, senior citizens from the Mäetaguse rural municipality have been placed to different care facilities all over Estonia, which does not ensure integral communication between the generations. The senior citizens have been separated from those close to them and meetings have rendered made difficult because of the distance.
SA Alutaguse Hoolekeskus complies with requirements to nursing hospitals as concerns the facilities, service contents, and health care and nursing equipment/accessories (Health Care Administration Act, requirements to types of hospitals, Social Welfare Act, etc.). SA Alutaguse Hoolekeskus is ready for acceding to the eHealth system and co-operation with the Health Insurance Fund, social/health care institutions and local governments with a view of further service development in the Ida-Viru County. The following additional services are being developed at the Care Centre for our patients/customers: physiotherapy, activation, activity therapy, hobby activities, modern accommodation, own kitchen, sauna, library, hairdresser, manicure, pedicure, rest areas and handicraft workshops, possibility for visiting pool.
