Rea Silvia is a character from old Roman mythology. According to legend, she was the mother of Romulus and Remus. The story says that her uncle, fearing that her sons would someday take his throne from him, ordered her to be arrested and her babies thrown into the river. However, the slave which had the assignment to do that took pity on the children and instead let them float down the river in a basket. Mars’ wolf Martia found the children when she went to drink some water from the river and fed them with her own milk. Since then, Rea is considered the symbol for self-sacrifice and her wolf for protection and courage.

- HEALTHCARE SERVICES
Our users can make use of the highest quality medical services offered by our highly qualified staff consisting of doctors, nurses, caretakers, technicians, physical therapists and other associates. All members of our staff are experts in their fields who have been specially trained for their tasks involving caring for persons with or without special needs.
- SOCIAL PROTECTION SERVICES
At our institution we believe that caring for the elderly is a moral obligation of every individual and society in general as well as a humane foundation of our civilization. In spite of the regulations which list standards, acts and strategies for caring of the elderly, it’s not uncommon that they end up deprived and uncared for. By educating our citizens and reminding them of the human values we hope to popularize active and more focused care for the elderly in everyday life.
At our institution we do our best to satisfy all spiritual, cultural, physical, psychological, social and other needs of our users in order to enable them to lead happier, more complete lives and in the best way make use of their existing abilities for independent life.
- REHABILITATION SERVICES
Seeing how one of our main goals is to include a certain dose of physical activities into the lives of our users and enable them to be as independent as possible in accordance with their health condition. Our institution also provides rehabilitation and physical therapy services. We also have specialized and purposefully equipped rooms for these activities where our expert physical therapists and physiatrists guide the entire process. Rehabilitation is founded on continuity and individual work in accordance with the abilities of the user.
- THE SERVICES OF WORK AND OCCUPATION THERAPY
This term is used to describe any type of physically-mental activity which is guided by an expert for the purpose of recovering from diseases and injuries. Work-occupation therapy can include recreational, creative, manual, educational or social activities undertaken for the purpose of rehabilitation and regaining certain psychological or physical functions. Like most of our services, the goal of this type of therapy is to help our users become more independent in their everyday activities and allow them to rejoin their families and society, to not depend on outside help and to also master new skills in order for a better overall life quality.
- SUPPORTING THE FAMILIES
As the result of years of experience in aiding and caring for the elderly persons and supporting their families, we have opened a Rea Luks center for family support and education in our institution. Here, experts from various profiles work to systematically solve all life difficulties faced by our users and their family. It is our goal to educate the public on the importance of mental health, healthy and functional relationships in the family and other difficulties that old age brings with itself which affect not only the users themselves but their loved ones as well. With a special focus on problems resulting from dementia, our professional team gathers psychologists, defectologists, andragogues and social workers who are all very experienced in providing support, help and advice to our users and their families.
As a very important element of a happy and high quality life, social life at our institution has an important role and consists of various activities such as: picnics, celebrations, walks, gardening, competitions and various other activities. We also have all sorts of social games like chess, dominoes, puzzles and activities like knitting, sewing, embroidering, reading... we also regularly organize various theme nights: music, folklore, dance, movie and we cooperate with local kindergartens and organize spending time with children and entertainment by animators with all due respect of the age and intellectual capacities as well as individual affinities of our users.
