Experienced in working in retirement and nursing homes
Thanks to our cooperation with the Loogarten Foundation, the retirement and nursing center in Esslingen, we know the issues and challenges of homes and nursing institutions from our own experience. Our acute geriatricians work there - in addition to their work in the hospital - as physicians.
We work closely with social counseling, nutritional counseling, physical and occupational therapy, and the Center for Mental Health. In addition to proven cooperations with the nursing homes in the region, our geriatricians have medical responsibility for the Loogarten nursing home.
