Day clinic

The geriatric-rehabilitative day clinic is used for the rehabilitation of patients who are no longer employed and do not necessarily require a completly inhospital treatment. Thus, the requirement ''as much outpatient as possible '' is also taken into account in geriatrics. For example, a patient may have a special physiotherapy, an ergotherapeutic treatment as well as, if necessary, a speech therapy after a stroke during the day, and yet still lead their daily life in the home environment. The hospitalization effects harmful to geriatric patients are thus avoided. Home visits allow the patient to adjust the aids individually or fit the living environment to the handicap. The transport of patients is organized by the Geriatric Department. This ensures that patients - including wheelchair users - reach the day clinic in the morning and return to their home in the afternoon. Meals during the day are part of the rehabilitation service.

The therapeutic offer of the Geriatric Department includes, among other things, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social services, pastoral care and neuropsychology.
