ALZHEIMER HOME Průhonice
ALZHEIMER HOME Průhonice is located 16 km southeast of the centre of Prague in the Prague-West district in the Central Bohemian Region. The modern centre can be found in a residential area near the national cultural monument and UNESCO site - Průhonice Park. The facility includes a large garden with zen elements. The overall space offers many opportunities for therapeutic activities, such as a barefoot experience walkway, herb beds and birdhouses. A pair of peacocks walk around the garden, which the clients love to watch. Clients also make use of the spacious lounge connected to the conservatory, the large cosy library and the phototherapy beach with its warm sand. There is also a studio for hairdressing and pedicure services, a gym connected to the physiotherapy facilities, a kitchen with a baking oven, a reminiscence room and a wellness area with a hydro-massage bath.
Our clients are provided with quality health services covering basic specialties that help to optimally diagnose and treat all common health problems and prevent them. There is a well-equipped medical department. Wherever possible and practical, clients are thus provided with examinations and outpatient treatment directly at the facility. Our collaborators are top specialists in general practice, psychiatry or other fields. We have a sophisticated system of medical visits and regular preventive checks of the mental and physical condition of our clients. Thanks to this, we are able to catch any change in health status and immediately adjust the medical, nursing and dietary regimen.
ALZHEIMER HOME is part of the Penta Hospitals group. Penta Hospitals operates a network of hospitals and specialist outpatient clinics in the Czech Republic and it is our natural intention to offer our clients and families better and more comprehensive healthcare services in the future with this unique combination. It is for this reason that Ambulance Penta s.r.o. (from the Penta Hospitals group) is gradually becoming a new healthcare provider in our facilities in the field of general general practice and in selected areas of specialised outpatient care.
An integral part of our ALZHEIMER HOME Průhonice facility is the office of a general practitioner.

Activation activities and therapies
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. Our trained staff use a variety of methods and ways of approaching and communicating with the client using basal stimulation and elements of validation.
The cornerstones of the activation activities are reminiscence therapy, memory training, music therapy, dance therapy or canister therapy. Specially equipped rooms for rehabilitation, relaxation and fitness exercises, therapeutic cooking and baking, an art studio and ceramic workshops are also used for activation. In addition, our clients regularly visit the phototherapy beach, which, among other things, positively affects mood and helps with insomnia.
We do not close ourselves off from the world - quite the contrary: hiking, picnics in nature, visits to cultural events, exhibitions and museums are very popular here. Our own bus is a great advantage.
We are proud holders of the Intergenerational Certificate. The children participate with the clients in the activities organized in and outside the centre. They also entertain us with their games in the playground, which is tastefully integrated into our large garden. Their presence has a positive effect on the psyche of the clients, the children's immediacy evokes interest and a smile on their faces.
