ALZHEIMER HOME

ALZHEIMER HOME is a unique project of linking cutting-edge health and social services in the care of patients with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia. Homes across the country are for clients who need the help of another person 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The mission of ALZHEIMER HOME is to provide comprehensive and individualized residential social services. The professional staff supports the clients' self-sufficiency and active lifestyle, respects their individual habits and preserves their rights and human dignity.

 

ALZHEIMER HOME Zlín

Alzheimercentrum Zlín is located in a quiet part of the city, near the forest with a beautiful view of the Bata houses and at the same time near the university and high school buildings. When the weather permits, clients spend a lot of time on the terrace covered by an awning or use the relaxation area. All areas are freely accessible - so clients and their families have plenty of opportunities to enjoy peace and privacy during their visits.

The Children's Group Brouček brings a pleasant buzz to our centre. There is no doubt that the presence of children has a positive effect on the psyche of the clients.

There is also a beauty salon on the premises, which is regularly used by a hairdresser and a pedicurist, and a general practitioner's office, which is also used by a psychiatrist.

The Center received the Good Soul Award for creating an exceptional environment for volunteer assistance. We greatly appreciate all those who help us in caring for our clients with their kindness and understanding.

At the same time, we are a venue for memory testing at the Czech Alzheimer's Society, which takes place throughout the year and also as part of Memory Days.

We cooperate closely with the Zlín Secondary Medical School and the Faculty of Humanities of Tomas Bata University, whose students undergo professional practice and internships with us.

Complete equipment of all rooms

Our clients are accommodated in a pleasant home environment in double rooms (exceptionally single rooms) with private bathroom. All rooms are fully equipped, but we offer the possibility of their own retrofitting. The whole area is fully wheelchair accessible.

The capacity of our ALZHEIMER HOME Zlín facility is 152 beds.

Activation activities

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 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 and music therapy. Specially equipped rooms for nursing rehabilitation, fine and gross motor exercises, aromatherapy and therapeutic cooking and baking are used for activation. In addition, the centre offers canister therapy and therapy with ponies.

We don't close ourselves off from the world either - quite the opposite: we go on trips, to exhibitions and theatres. Children from kindergartens and primary art schools, music and theatre associations regularly give performances for us.

  • Dear Director, thank you for inviting me to Alzheimer's Day. I enjoyed the event very much and it was very beneficial for me to see what you are able and willing to organize for your patients. It is unbelievable. On behalf of our family, I want to thank you and your staff so much for all that you do and especially how you do it in the difficult care of our patients. Best regards and good day to you Josef Tlusťák

  • Dear Director, I would like to thank not only you but also all your staff for taking care of my mother. She had been a client of yours since December last year and in early October this year, after a brief hospitalization in the neurological ward, she was transferred back to your facility in a serious condition, where she unfortunately died. I kept in contact with my mother by phone throughout her stay with you, as it was not entirely easy for me to visit her more often than about once a month. I live 200 miles away, I am not motorised and due to the corona situation visits were limited. I can say with certainty, however, that you have ensured her a joyful fulfillment of the end of her life and, most importantly, a dignified and peaceful life with your wonderful and kind approach. I could name more staff but unfortunately I didn't write their names down, but I do remember Nurse Veronica. I had the opportunity to communicate with her several times during previous visits and I appreciate her attitude, humanity, empathy and kind words. Also the three nursing assistants, deserve special thanks. I am extremely grateful that I was allowed to be there for the last weeks of my mother's life at any time and for any length of time, but what is extremely important to me is that I felt the participation and emotional support of the entire staff until the very last moment. I would like to highlight the work of your staff not only on the 1st floor where mum was placed. I was touched when I found out that staff from other floors also came to see her, say hello or speak to her. In the last few days you provided her with a canary which was brought to her room occasionally and continued to stimulate her senses when you took her to cultural programmes etc. As I have spent more time in your facility in recent weeks, I can say with respect and great gratitude that you should be a role model for all other facilities that care for seniors, as well as hospitals. I think that like everywhere else, you are an understaffed workplace, the staff are certainly overworked, they have their problems, but they try to do their best, they always find time for a few kind words, a nice smile. Working with such severely ill people is extremely challenging in every way, but your clients have their time filled with a variety of activities, which is absolutely the best. I would also like to thank you, the director, as well as the station nurse for your concern and finding ways to improve the last moments of the mother. I would very much like your work to be adequately appreciated and if it were in my power, I would treat each of you to at least a 2-week mandatory relaxation stay once a year where you too could totally switch off and have someone look after you. Sincerely and from the bottom of my heart I would like to wish the whole team especially good health, good personal happiness, energy, success, patience, love and strength so that you can continue to give a lot of yourselves to others. You are doing a wonderful job. With warm regards and respect Inka Rábeková
