ASSISTED LIVING

Retiring from working life does not automatically mean having withdrawn from the world. The elderly citizens of today are more often than not still active, capable, taking pride and pleasure in what they do and should be encouraged to continue to do so. Looking back at Austria at the turn of the century, where the concept of Assisted Living for senior citizens was scarcely known and comparing it to nowadays, one factor shines through: The innovative housing form of Assisted Living is increasingly becoming a supporting, alternative way of living during old age.

DEMAND FOR ASSISTED LIVING WILL CONTINUE TO RISE. THE REASONS FOR THIS ARE AS DIVERSE AS OUR RESIDENTS:


Elderly citizens enjoy a longer life expectancy with increasing health

Age group 60+ years will increase by ¼ within the next 10 years

Housing solutions in conventional nursing homes oftentimes are not appropriate, yet expensive

Demand for alternative, modern and affordable ways of living in old age increases

There is a high or even greater desire for self-determination in old age

Desire for a pleasant environment to autonomously live out old age strengthens

Assisted Living may prevent loneliness in old age

Demand for smaller support-services in everyday life


Our service is aimed at senior citizens who enjoy living in an independent and self-determined way, can rely on a social network and like to count on smaller support services in their day-to-day-life.

AN ALTERNATIVE TO NURSING HOMES

Our residents are senior citizens that like the ability to rely on smaller support services in everyday life, but at the same time are completely autonomous in their decision making. At first glance our residential buildings do not differ much from conventional ones. While many retirement and nursing homes are increasingly built as anonymous complexes at the edge of society, Silver Living focuses on attractive barrier-free housing facilities of manageable size located in the center of rural or urban life.

Our residential buildings are designed for seniors with need for assistance within care levels 1-3. In addition, higher care levels may be catered to individually by mobile care services.

YOUR ADVANTAGES AT A GLANCE:


Central location with good infrastructure

Support of our residents’ independence, autonomy and mobility

Individual furnishing using own furniture and keepsakes according to personal taste

Each apartment is equipped with a modern kitchen and a senior-friendly bathroom

Invitingly designed community spaces like common rooms, shared terraces or gardens

BARRIER FREE EQUIPMENT

Accessibility is one of the most important aspects when it comes to Assisted Living. That is why, like the rest of the whole complex, our bright and inviting apartments are generally designed to be barrier-free and offer the highest possible flexibility to our residents. The implementation of senior friendly architectural structures guarantees an independent lifestyle and facilitates care work (and if necessary, nursing) within the home significantly.

Our Assisted Living apartments along with their equipment and care services are ranked as the most innovative throughout Europe. This fact has long since spread to Austria’s federal states, often making Silver Living a focal point for many communities looking to establish trend-setting housing facilities for their senior population.

EXAMPLES OF ACCESSIBILITY:


Barrier-free construction of the entire complex

Elevator to all floors

Fully equipped kitchen in every apartment

(with automatic water stop)

Smoke detectors all around the complex and in each apartment

Bathrooms completely designed to seniors’ needs, i.a. equipped with floor level showers and handrails

Barrier-free access to own open spaces (terrace, balcony, loggia)

Front door safety cylinder can be locked from both sides

Pleasantly furnished, generous common room with a kitchen
