LONG TERM NURSING HOME CARE

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

Cuba’s approach to primary healthcare has enabled it to meet its elderly population’s needs within their communities allowing 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 on society as well. 

Utilizing this experience, Cuba has set in place the Cuban medical programs for the elderly with a focus on primary and secondary care as well as on preemptive 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 and improve quality of living.

THE APPROACH:

Through CubaHeal’s relationship with La Pradera International Health Center, and our sister company EcoCuba Pro, we have succeeded in producing a program that not only addresses the accommodation needs of the residents but also their quality of health and life by turning such stay into a long-term health and rehabilitation vacation in one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful islands.

La Pradera prides itself on 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 multidisciplinary medical experience, all in a natural, attractive and revitalizing environment.
