Residential Care Homes

These exist throughout Greece and may be run as for profit institutions, not for profit, public bodies or as and by  religious bodies. Increasingly those who use such centres tend to be amongst the most dependent. Some homes have staff and managers speaking various languages and anyone seeking help can look on the web site for private homes, or find information through your local religious community.

Currently we are aware of no sheltered housing units anywhere in Greece.

If you need help you can do what Greeks with money do – pay and obtain support in the care of their dependent elderly relatives from migrant care workers. There are specialised employment agencies for this  and migrants workers already  speak English (from Sri Lanka, Philippines, India, Africa)

Measuring Progress:Indicators for care homes



The main target audience of this handbook are the key stakeholders of care homes, which includes its management, staff, clients and relatives, as well as policy decision-makers, regulators and sponsors. The handbook contains a set of 94 selected result-oriented indicators that has been developed on the basis of the exchange of experiences and existing tools in selected EU Member States.
The focus of this set of indicators is directed towards the question how care homes can measure and manage improvements with regard to the quality of life of their clients, and the related issues of quality of care, management, economic performance and relationships with external stakeholders. The description of the indicators therefore also embraces proposals on how to apply them and instruments for their use.
The Handbook is available in three languages: English, German and Dutch. The handbook is one of the outputs of the project ‘Quality Management by Result-oriented Indicators – Towards Benchmarking in Residential Care for Older People’ that has been co-financed by the European Commission, DG Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities in the framework of the PROGRESS Programme.
