Service Description

For a lifetime, you have been able to move around freely without the help of others. Suddenly, however, you need regular care, help from others, a barrier-free living situation and other support and facilities. These options include

  • Age-appropriate housing: These homes must meet special requirements, as they must enable seniors to lead their daily lives without obstacles. These include, for example, step-free access to the apartment, wheelchair-accessible sanitary and kitchen facilities, ramps, stair lifts, non-slip floor coverings and grab rails in the bathroom and toilet.
  • Senior housing complexes: While age-appropriate apartments are also individual apartments, senior housing complexes are several rental or owner-occupied apartments, often combined with services, care facilities and nursing care.
  • Care homes for the elderly: Retirement homes, non-profit or private-commercial, offer full care by in-house staff up to and including heavy nursing care. The ratio of nursing staff to non-specialist staff is set out in the Home Staff Ordinance.
