The Dynamic Model of Elderly Care Unit
At Aktios, we embrace the dynamic model of an Elderly Care Unit that ensures the function of an innovative and flexible organisational arrangement, inside a structured framework that can evolve and can sustain constant feedback from the residents, the employees, the families and the environment.
Aktios Elderly Care Units aims to become a model of dynamic development and not an inactive – static- institution.
The personnel of the Units, the services provided, the facilities, do not emerge from a static outlook on the Units’ function. By approaching the residents and by organising their living inside and outside of the Units, we try to combine quality with adaptability and flexibility.
Relationships and tasks can be reconsidered and reassigned according to the situation and specific needs, the rehabilitation and therapeutic programme can be adjusted according to individual needs, the Unit facilities may adapt to the residents’ individuality and desires, residents’ diet may have variety, and time is experienced in a unique way and not in a routinely fashion.
An effective and supporting Elderly Care Unit provides flexibility and security to ensure the development of residents’ autonomy and independence.
The dynamic model of the Units facilitates the elderly residents and the employees, with the opportunity to develop their skills and to develop group and community spirit, creative expression and better communication with the self, through an environment which respects individuality and expression of freedom. In addition, a dynamic unit promotes autonomy by eliminating the ‘patient’ and ‘carer’ role and the logic of institutionalisation.
At Aktios, we aspire to becoming exactly that, a space full of life and energy.
Aktios’ Elderly Care Units abide to the existing legal framework (presidential orders, ministerial decisions, etc) which controls the function of all legally functioning elderly Care Units in Greece.
