Multiple sclerosis care
People with multiple sclerosis (MS) have special needs when it comes to their living environment. And if they are dependent on care and assistance, they need care that meets the specific needs of their disease. People with MS can find both at the Alfons-Hoffmann-Haus.
We offer assisted living in a separate living area. Here it is also possible to consider the needs of younger residents in need of care and to organize the daily routine individually. Here you will find an atmosphere of well-being: in a friendly and modern house with an awareness of nature and a large garden that is actively used.
Independence and community
The living area is located on the first floor for maximum accessibility and social participation. From here it is only a few meters to the garden and the public cafeteria. Centrally located in the living area, a large kitchen and a cozy living room provide space for socializing. The adjoining single and double rooms, each with its own bathroom, offer space for private retreat.
Lifeworld-centered daily living
Our goal is to support our residents in organizing their daily lives in the best possible way. We focus on people's biographies and living environments: their individual times of getting up and going to bed, their eating habits.
At the same time, we respond to people's idiosyncrasies and help them express them, for example through person-centered activation activities, individually or in groups, such as art projects, museum visits, and trips to the zoo or botanical garden.
Person-centered care and assistance
Care is also tailored to the specific needs of people with MS. This is supported by a physiotherapist who provides therapy directly in the residence, adapted to the living environment. A speech therapist helps with swallowing, articulation or breathing problems. Pain and occupational therapy, massage, aromatherapy, and conversation and relaxation techniques are used to relieve symptoms and promote independence.
In addition to trained nursing staff, our team includes social workers, occupational therapists, and volunteers who have been with us for many years.
We view care and assistance as a respectful encounter, which is why quality is our top priority. Our caregivers receive regular training from the German Multiple Sclerosis Society, with whom we work closely.
We involve family members and volunteers in care and assistance, and work with specialized physicians and clinics to provide the best possible care for our residents.
