Fourteen specialised centres exist in the Czech Republic and Slovakia

Alzheimer Centre is a group of fourteen facilities belonging to the CREDITAS group. Alzheimer Centre has been specialising in the care of clients with Alzheimer's disease in all its stages for 25 years. It is the largest network of its kind in the Czech Republic.

Thirteen specialised centres in the Czech Republic and one in Slovakia provide social services and comprehensive nursing care to their clients. The unique concept builds on an individualized approach and the involvement of clients in activation therapies, regardless of the stage of dementia. The homely atmosphere, safety and comfort of the clients are crucial for the staff of the centres. That is why they place great emphasis on the adaptation process, where the client gets used to the new environment and the nurses’ faces. At the end of this period, the initially unknown environment becomes their home.
