The trend: Retirement homes are booming - but nobody wants to go there!
The residential care group as a solution true to the motto: away from nursing home?
Almost all families will eventually have to deal with caregiving or dementia and they are considering a whole range of new ideas for elderly care.
All with the goal: away from the nursing home. The problem is that the families are getting smaller and the older people are getting more: not every family can take care of their older relatives themselves. At the moment you can observe a big upheaval in the German and European family. The small families are expanding from the blood to the family of choice. Friends, neighbors, acquaintances take older people into their care.
The ambulant residential care groups are making a major leap forward. There are about eight people in need of care living together. Their own families take care of them, as do the neighbors. They go shopping for the residents, cook for them and go for a walk with them.
More and more housing companies, church congregations and communities are currently building such residential communities and even homes are setting up ambulant residential groups.
