Being active is important at any age. We engage our clients daily in a range of activities that are tailored to each individual. Knowing our clients' habits, interests and personal needs helps us to tailor a mix of activities to make their day enjoyable and enjoyable.
The cornerstones of the activation activities are reminiscence therapy, memory training and music therapy. Specially equipped rooms are also used for activation.
We also have a bus available, so we can go on a trip outside of Prague, which we always enjoy very much.
Therapeutic procedures of quality care are provided by the method of Basal Stimulation, Reminiscence Therapy and other concepts that help to maintain the quality of life of clients at the highest possible level.
We are also often visited by children, for example from the nearby Youth Home. They always prepare an interesting program for our clients.
Examples of therapeutic activities
Basal stimulation is a nursing care concept commonly used in Western European countries. Our Home works on the basis of the concept of basal stimulation and thus significantly improves the quality of client care and brings it to a completely different level than is common or generally known. This model of our care distances itself from the generally established practices, does not "preserve" the client's condition, but develops and stimulates it. Basally stimulating care is not performed on the client, but is shaped within the limits and abilities of the client and the caregiver. Care must become an experience, not an unpleasant experience. The client is an equal partner, a person with his or her own history and individuality. We offer the client sensations that he or she can decide whether or not to accept. Touch is very important in our care. Touch is a basic human ability. We support all levels of his perception, activating his brain activity based on long-term memory pathways and stimulation of the sensory organs.
Reminiscence therapy is based on the recognition that the knowledge, memories and habits that are fixed in long-term memory remain in the brain the longest. Clients bring small objects, photographs, pictures, certificates, medals, and other items that were once part of their lives to the Home. A so-called memory case and album is compiled from these objects and worked with with the help of a reminiscence therapist. Reminiscence therapy doesn't just draw on memory albums or briefcases. It is a whole range of therapy based on long-term memory pathways, which includes so-called reminiscence. Memories of the lives lived by clients or their loved ones are written down and are part of the briefcases and the therapy. We draw from them information about our clients and can work much more effectively with the client because we know at least a little about their life history.
