24 h care (nursing home service)
24 h nursing at the centre is a welfare service. Currently, nursing homes offering general services are not entitled to the right of providing health care services – in other words, the work done by nurses has not been legally specified. The purpose of nursing home service is to assist the elderly in coping through everyday care; it includes accommodation service, first level care and hobby activities (to the possible extent). Therefore, nursing home customers need to be relatively healthy senior citizens who do not require periodical nursing care, but who are offered the nursing care services if necessary by the employees of the day-time nursing care unit.
