Our Frail Care Centre consists of 4x4 bedrooms, 6x2 bedrooms, 4 single rooms and an Emergency Room. All the bedrooms promote safety, interaction and companionship.

In addition to the frail care service, the nursing staff at Deutsches Altersheim provide a general 24-hour medical support care service to the Assisted Living Residents. This service includes a free blood pressure clinic once a week, routine medical care and daily room visits by the sister or nursing staff.

More importantly though, each resident in Deutsches Altersheim has the comfort of knowing that they have immediate access to the medical support system through the use of a panic button in the case of a medical emergency. The panic button should be kept close by the residents and should be available to him/her at all times.
