Medical Focus Areas

One of the main tasks of the Geriatric Rehabilitation Clinic Mannheim is to provide counseling to individuals who find themselves in this unusual life situation. Apart from the regular duties of the daily hospital routine, our nursing team works according to the principle of “activating care”. Their efforts are mainly focused at enabling patients to recover their lost abilities. Therefore elderly individuals are not simply relieved of daily tasks such as washing and dressing but the objective is to reteach these skills during targeted washing and dressing training sessions.

  • Activating care
