Our Mission Statement

The Evangelische Geriatriezentrum belongs to the Diakonische Werk social welfare association. Our care mission statement is based on the home's corporate mission statement. For us, this means that human dignity and the right to self-determination are inviolable.

We implement the way we see people in a benevolent atmosphere of trust and mutual respect. We give priority to the needs of our customers. We see all our customers as people with their own life history, their own questions and fears, expectations and needs, habits, ideologies and personal environments. Our aim is to help them achieve the greatest possible independence, to maintain existing abilities and to support them in avoiding any further restrictions in their health.

Our holistic care concept follows the idea of a proactive, therapeutic-rehabilitative care model according to Dorothea Orem. Our professional remit also includes alleviating pain together with providing appropriately dignified terminal care. At the customer's request, family members are kept informed about all matters, instructed in care procedures and included in all activities. It is also a matter of course for us to ensure that customers receive all necessary advice and support.
