Welcome to Aktios’ website!
Aktios, a colorful and vivid organization of elderly care with a capacity of 270 beds in 4 units, introduces a special and unique model of care!
In our units, Aktios and Aktios Alzheimer Unit located in Agia Paraskevi, Aktios Odigos in Vari, as well as Aktios Art Palace located in Maroussi, we emphasize in hospitality services, nursing care as well as stroke and bone fracture rehabilitation and provide specialized services for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
In Aktios' Units we follow a dynamic model of operation. With frequent changes in decoration according to the season, many different activities and occupations, colors, light and music, we manage to create a residence full of life. We aim that Aktios Units be places of life and health rather than conventional elderly care units.
Our main concern is to maintain the home environment and provide a care setting where residents and guests feel as safe and comfortable as they would at home, while at the same time they may enjoy hospitality and specialized psycho geriatric services.
Aktios employs specialized scientists and competent health professionals. Our model of working with people with dementia (Aktios Kindergarten Approach) is presented in conferences and educational programs, our stuff is constantly earning recognition in their field and our units have become internship and educational settings, places to visit and find occupation for new scientists. This model of operation is presented in special scientists and colleagues from Europe, Brazil, Turkey, China and USA who visit our units to witness its implementation.

With your assistance, we strive daily for the self-evident: qualitative health services, care and quality of life for the people we love. We believe that an Elderly Care Unit isn’t an institutional elderly care unit or an asylum for retired. It is knowledge, specialization and a framework for providing services to our elderly family members and the community.
