Sint Martin’s Home Elderly Care
What is Elderly Care?
Our Elderly Care homes consist of three buildings with ten apartments.
Our nurses provide guidance and help to the seniors who cannot fully manage their day-to-day routines alone at home anymore.
Each client has their own apartment, including a bathroom where they live semi-independent.
At least 5 of the 9 criteria need to be applicable:
Lack of family care/family support
Lack of social independence
Difficulties in motor function
Difficulties in psychosocial functioning
Difficulties in cognitive functioning (for example, onset of dementia, mild intellectual disability, brain trauma)
A need for assistance with personal care / self-care
Insufficient means of income to sustain oneself
In the event the potential client is being abused, admission is possible without any of the other 8 criteria being applicable.
A potential client is 60 years or older
A score of 6 or higher for the Activities of Daily Living (assessed by us)
Copy of a valid health insurance & SXM ID or passport
A detailed census registration form (no older than 6 months)
Proof of pension from SZV
Medical history from the family physician or medical specialist
A need for protected living with care and guidance (for details, see the other criteria on other side)
Once all documents are received, the client’s name will be placed on the waiting list.
We will then conduct a home visit, where the needs are assessed.
An AVBZ-care request is then filled in and submitted for approval.
Once approved and when a space becomes available for the client, the family will be called and an admission date is planned.
