New Palliative Care Center in Wrocław
Comprehensive senior living complex Angel Care in Wrocław is opening an independent Palliative Care Center. It will house 20 patients and provide support for their families and friends. The Center has taken steps to obtain a contract with the National Health Fund.
At the Angel Care Palliative Care Center the patients have at their disposal single or double rooms, all with en-suite bathroom, as well as a day room, individual therapy rooms and access to a garden. Security and comfort of the patients is ensured by palliative medicine specialists. The Center is also fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment necessary for the proper performance of services. The patients’ families are offered the use of guest rooms, with optional catering.
“In response to the need, after 10 months of opening Angel Care, we are expanding our medical offer, primarily to accommodate those requiring support during the most difficult times. The Palliative Care Center was designed to provide the patients and their families with comprehensive care in a comfortable environment” says Michał Kowalski, General Director at Angel Care.
The new Palliative Care Center in Wrocław can house 20 patients. Admission to the Center is based on medical assessment performed by specialist physicians at Angel Care. At present the Center is ready to admit paying patients.
“We have applied to obtain a contract with the National Health Fund. Our hope is that the patients will be provided with free access to high quality specialist services, of which at present there is a severe dearth in Wrocław. Our Center is the only of its kind in the heart of the city, in the vicinity of the University Clinical Hospital and the Lower Silesian Oncology Center, and close to major transport routes, as well as both the railway and the bus station” emphasizes Michał Kowalski.
The Palliative Care Center is a fully independent and functional unit within Angel Care. The complex comprises also three other independent parts. Nursing home is designed for people who need constant medical and professional assistance in daily activities. The Dementia Treatment Center provides care for the elderly with dementia or the Alzheimer’s disease. Angel Care offers also apartments for active seniors with services and medical support – it’s the first facility of this kind providing such a comprehensive offer for Seniors of all ages.
Angel Care continues to grow.
“In order to meet the expectations and needs of the seniors and their families we observe in which areas we can provide support and advice of our experts” adds Michał Kowalski.
To this end in December 2016 the Memory Clinic was opened within the complex. It focuses on education, diagnostics, prevention, and research of dementia diseases, with particular emphasis on the Alzheimer’s disease. It offers free tests and consultations with specialists.
