Senior House EDEN
Senior’s House Eden is located on the outskirts of Prachatice in the countryside. Prachatice is a small, beautiful city an hour from the Bavarian border. At the old marketplace you will find nice restaurants, cafes and small hotels. Prachatice is immersed in nature and offers all the amenities you could wish for.
The facility was formerly a hotel which was completely renovated in 2015 and converted into a retirement home. Currently it hosts 75 senior citizens. The house is very modern, bright and appealing. Currently, it is being modernized again and the apartments are being enlarged. Due to high demand, a new building is being built in the neighbouring property. The property has several lounges for rest and relaxation. In the large, bright dayroom a lot of activities are offered. A small, sunny garden with a terrace invites you to relax outside. A security system guarantees the safety and integrity of the elderly.
Rooms and furnishing
The facility can host 75 seniors in large single to triple rooms. These are stylishly furnished with a bed, a bedside table, a table and chairs, a chest of drawers and a wardrobe. Each room has a fixed TV with German channels. WIFI is free for everyone. Guests are welcome to bring something personal from home if desired. All rooms have a modern, disabled bathroom.
Five meals per day are freshly cooked and offered in the in-house kitchen. The seniors can expect a delicious, regional and German cuisine. At lunchtime even a 3-course menu is served, with soup, main course and dessert.
The 75 residents are mostly from Germany, but also Czech seniors live there. The facility is ideally suited for dementia sufferers due to its manageable size, the idyllic and quiet location and the very family friendly environment. Seniors with other diseases can also be hosted there.
The majority of the nursing staff come from the Czech Republic and Ukraine. In total, 40 nursing staff lovingly take care of the elderly. Most speak good German. A 1: 5 care is guaranteed.
The facility offers many activities. These include memory training, gymnastics classes, creative classes and biography work. This summer, two very spacious group rooms were built in an attached new building to expand the space for seniors. The house has its own physiotherapist, she practices with the elderly every day. This service is included in the price. Regular trips are made, e.g. to the Christmas market, for shopping and coffee in the city, or trips to the neighbouring nature. In the house, the hairdresser or the pedicure visits regularly, but have to be paid for separately.
A German speaking family doctor visits two times a week. In the neighbouring cities there are several clinics. A pharmacy delivers the medication. The treatment costs are taken care of by the German health insurance as perthe European agreement.
A place costs between 1200 € and 1750 € per month. Depending on the level of care, the German Nursing Fund pays part of the nursing care costs from 316 € in grade 2 to 901 € in nursing grade 5.
