Day care HELSKE

Day care is an attractive care concept for elderly people, which is limited to the activities in the morning and the afternoon. During this time, the guests participate in various activities. Thus joint handicrafts and games are just as much a part of the daily activities as memory training or small excursions. A structured daily routine with common meals is an integral part of the day care. The biggest advantage for the guests is the daily return to their home. This not only relieves the burden on relatives, but also calms them down, because the person in need of care does not have to stay permanently in a retirement home.

Our offers and your advantages

  • Our guests find company during the day and are individually nursed, cared for and attended.
  • It is possible to be a guest in our day care HELSKE either once a week or several days a week.
  • Due to our extended opening hours from Monday to Sunday from 07:00 to 19:00 o’clock, we offer caring relatives an additional relief in the evening and on weekends.
  • Our own transport service is happy to pick up our guests and bring them home safely.

Our first day care HELSKE in Bad Harzburg has been under construction since 01 April 2019. (News) Further locations are already being planned and will be announced promptly on our website and our social media channels.

If you have any questions about our day care HELSKE, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time using the contact form.
