Home for the Elderly
Our elderly require an integral approach directed to the strengthening of physical, emotional and spiritual encounter with God. These will lead to the older adults’ stable and balanced personal growth, which will translate into a healthier physical and mental state. Moderation or elimination of self-harming or destructive habits is also one of our goals with this approach.
As part of our integral approach, our residents enjoy the following benefits:
ample country style facilities with well-ventilated bedrooms equipped for handicap residents. The home also has dining and recreation areas as well as a clinic and an oratory.
balance nutrition and special diets
opportunities for recreational, cultural and artistic activities.
physical exercise lead by qualified personnel.
ecological walks appropriate for the contemplation of nature
Our residents also receive 24-hour attention and company of nursing assistants, who take care of all their needs. Monthly medical and nutrition management at the Foundation’s facilities are also provided. Urgent care is provided at the municipality hospital. We also provide transportation to doctors’ appointments with specialists from clinics located in Villavicencio (internal medicine, psychiatrists, orthopedics, neurology, physical therapy). The patient is always accompanied to their appointments by a Foundation directive and a nurse assistant.
We also provide time and space for leisure activities like games, recreational, arts and crafts, and excursions.
