ASSISTED LIVING CARE

Cuba is one of the few countries in the world with an inclusive and integral program for the care of elderly.

The approach to primary healthcare has enabled Cuba to meet it elderly population’s needs within their communities which allowed them to retain higher levels of dignity, independence and psychological health. Due to such approach, only 0.5% of Cuba’s elderly population are hospitalized and/or institutionalized which is not only positive for the elder individual but is less costly to society as well.

The Cuban medical programs for the elderly focus on primary and secondary and pre-emptive actions which can make a difference in the quality of life for the elderly. The final aim is to promote goals intended to achieve a healthier lifestyle.


THE APPROACH:

The Cuban Assisted Living program is intended for residents who require constant living care due to significant deterioration of the ability to carry daily living activities. The program entails the initials need assessment (7 days) followed by a tailored care program. The tailored care program is considered to be one of the globe’s most extensive in terms of safety, around the clock medical and urgent care, hygene and personal care, rehabilitation and entertainment.

Through our relationship with La Pradera International Health Center, we have succeeded in producing a program that not only addresses the accommodation needs of the resident but also the quality of health and life by turning such stay in to a long-term health and rehabilitation vaccation in one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful islands.

The center prides itself with its holistic approach to therapies of the body, mind and spirit. Its mission is to provide specialized medical care offered by specialists with high ethical, humanistic values, in addition to vast multi displinary medical experience, all in a natural, attractive and revitalizing environment.
