Feel at home – Protea community
“Home” is the center of a person’s life in childhood, adolescence and aging.
Moving to a Retirement Village is a significant step for both an individual and for a couple.
In order to facilitate the detachment from the old house and the move to a Retirement Village, the resident must be given the feeling of replacing a home in another home. Not in an institution, not in a nursing home, not in an old-age home, but in a designed, adapted home and part of a broad retirement community.
The Protea community, which now includes “Protea Village”, “Protea Hills”, “Protea by the Sea” (under construction) and “Protea in the Elkana” (in preparation for construction) – has adopted a policy and a management philosophy that advocates giving extensive package of services by a trained staff having the feeling of quality for each resident in the houses managed by Protea.
“To feel at home” means to feel a sense of physical, medical, social, economic and cultural security. Living in a comfortable, spacious apartment adjacent to diverse public areas, indoors and open to various activities. Alongside quality neighbors and friends and enjoy a high and consistent level of service.
“Feel at home” means to experience privacy, autonomy, empathy, personal dignity and hopeful – just like at home.
This is the policy, this is the managerial belief and thus the good reputation of every Protea community was built in the past, present and so in future homes.
