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.

Criteria

At least 5 of the 9 criteria need to be applicable:

  • (Self)neglect

  • Abuse*

  • 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.

Admission criteria

Required documents:

  • 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)

 

 

These documents can be emailed to: socialworker@wyccf.org

Follow up

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.
