OUR MISSION is to provide and organise qualified social and nursing care, personal health care and rehabilitation services for the elderly and disabled adults, promoting their empowerment, integration into society, expanding lifelong learning opportunities, reducing social exclusion and creating appropriate living conditions that resemble true home. Prienai retirement home is a 210-bed state-run social care institution for the elderly with disabilities. We are located in Prienai, on the banks of the Nemunas River, we were founded in 1948 by the Prienai District Municipality.
The retirement home was originally established in 1948 in Mačiūnai, Prienai District. In 1950 it was moved to its present location on the banks of the Nemunas River. Initially, about 50 people lived in the home, but after the construction of a brick apartment house, we were able to accommodate 200 people. Residents of the care home are accommodated in single and double rooms, and in the nursing ward in large, spacious, and comfortable rooms.
Since 1994, Lithuania has been undergoing an intensive reform of its care institutions. Social work programmes have been developed by orders of the Minister of Social Security and Labour, and social workers started working in care homes. The quality of life of the elderly and the disabled has dramatically improved in the region by means of social and medical rehabilitation. The Prienai retirement home started to provide a wider range of educational and rehabilitation services to the residents, strengthening their physical and mental health and integrating them into society in various ways. In 2007, a new modern two-storey building with an attic was built, covering an area of 1250 sq. m. This building has spacious rooms, new furniture, sanitary facilities adapted for the disabled, a lift and lobbies for various events. The building is home to veteran athletes. What is more, there is a training facility, where Lithuanian social workers and assistant social workers receive appropriate training.
