Traditional Old Age Homes – do we need to change?

GERATEC’s motto is ‘Excellence in person-centred care’.  We have been working hard to assist organisations to change their model of care from the traditional medical model to person-centred care. 

More recently, we became involved in Retirement Villages with the aim of ‘Aging in Place’ – where care services are provided to a resident in their own home within the village instead of moving into a Care Centre.   

Interesting to see that we are keeping abreast with international tendencies.  This article from the USA highlights the need for change within traditional nursing homes and suggests alternative ways of living for older people.
