LSIE stands for Long Stay Institution for the Elderly, thus the nomenclature asylum was extinct, it is a collective housing for people aged 60 years or more.
People of both sexes, aged 60 or over. As we are a residential home, we welcome elderly people with a dependency level of I or II.
Each and every elderly person, before joining our institution, undergoes a multi-professional assessment. Tests are also requested to assess the clinical condition of the elderly person and a psychosocial interview is held with the family. This assessment is necessary to better meet the needs of the elderly. The patient will only be admitted after the results of these assessments are available and we will then contact the person responsible for signing a contract between the parties involved. The elderly person will become our resident and we will immediately start the welcoming and adaptation work such as: presentation of the professionals who will take care of him/her, moving to the agreed accommodation, organisation of belongings and social interaction with the other residents.
The elderly can stay as long as they can and want to, always respecting their wish to stay.
