Medical and Nursing Care

Medical and Nursing Care

For our unit, nursing care presents our strong card. Whether we are faced with a difficult incident requiring intensive 24-hour nursing care or a simple one, our well-trained nurses are more than able to cope with it. The large number of nursing staff not only ensures the proper care and devotion to every patient without haste, but also ensures our immediate reaction in case of medical emergency.

A general practitioner is present in our unit every day and is thoroughly updated on the medical history of new patients while also undertaking the monitoring of existing patients and prescription of required medicines. Moreover, a permanent group of external doctors of all specialties are able, at any moment, to visit our unit and examine a patient with a specific problem. Of course, if a family wishes so, we are more than happy to accommodate the visit of any other external doctor. Finally, primarily for the safety of our patients, but also due to the restrictions of the law, for the carrying out of any medical intervention, patients are transferred to the appropriate hospital / medical center, always in consultation with the family.

Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Services

Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Services

It is not by chance that Iaso has adopted the term "rehabilitation" in its title. Our goal is that every client that comes through our doors becomes better every day and this is achieved by a combination of factors.

Apart from the thorough medical and nursing care that enhances and preserves, to the extent that this is possible, the physiological functions of our clients, we place great emphasis on their mobility. For us it is the main factor that regulates mental and respectively physical aging. Thus, as a first step, we make every effort to ensure that our residents stay in bed as less as possible during the day (if this is not medically necessary) taking care of their dressing and appearance and making sure they remain occupied throughout the day. At a further level, we incorporate them in a daily physiotherapy program tailored to their medical history and motor skills. Under the guidance of experienced physiotherapist Mr X, and always in consultation with their supervising physicians, we place many short term goals in order for the person to gradually recover its old motor functioning, and be relieved by related pains. In this effort we have at our disposal a fully equipped physiotherapy studio with the latest apparatus and machines for treating a wide range of motor and congenital disorders.

Finally, the above in conjunction with proper nutrition and a variety of creative activities ensure the gradual improvement of the physical and mental health of the individual. Our success stories are really moving and we encourage you to accompany us on one of our celebrations to witness our programs for yourselves.

Nutrition

Nutrition

It is known fact that nutrition plays a major role in human health and this role becomes even bigger with aging. At Iaso, our patient’s daily diets are fully adapted to the needs of the elderly and are designed by a dietitian using only the finest ingredients. We pay attention to the use of seasonal fruits and vegetables as well as to the variety of the food we serve, which is based both on Greek and international cuisine satisfying even the most demanding tastes. Of course, in consultation with our clients, there is the possibility of adjusting the diet to accommodate dietary preferences or health related dietary restrictions.

Safety

Safety

The safety of our unit’s occupants is a top priority. All doors remain locked during night time while the premises remain under 24-hour CCTV surveillance. Additionally, each floor is attended to by a nurse throughout the night, making sure that all of the occupants’ needs are served efficiently and with care. Finally, the home’s general supervisor resides in flat within the premises and is thus able to assist with any matter requiring urgent care 24/7.

Our unit meets all the international fire protection standards. The unit is equipped with smoke detectors in all indoor areas, as well as prominently located fire extinguishers, while a large staircase at the rear of the building, further facilitates rapid evacuation in case of an emergency.
