Transfers to the hospital
We always take care of the transfer of residents, except for reasons of medical emergency. In that case, it is the medicalized ambulance that is responsible for the transfer.
In addition, while the resident is hospitalized, for whatever reason, the staff of our geriatric residence makes daily visits to meet needs not covered by the hospital (hair removal, shaving, cleaning in detail ...).
We have our own kitchen. The menus are programmed trying a varied diet and adapted to the state of health of the resident, supervised by a professional, in order to guarantee the adequate caloric contribution as well as to assure the correct hydration of the residents.
Respect the special diets that each resident may have planned by their doctor.
