Aktios Elderly Care Units comply to international standards, and aspire to become a ‘home’ for people who desire a more relaxed way of living, for people in rehabilitation, from various health problems, for people suffering from chronic diseases, Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, and for older people who are in need of medical or nursing attendance and special care.
Our main concern is to provide a care setting where residents and guests feel as safe and comfortable as they would at home, while at the same time enjoy hospitality, and specialized psycho-geriatric services.
