Independent living facility for elderly ID people in Márga Street, Budapest
In our home those elderly people are living, above the age of 55 years, who are not able to live an independent life, neither with a lot of help. They need continuous care and many of them are in a phase of their life, when learning new things is very difficult and demencia is typical. The application of the INV model means in our case to slow down the deterioration of the residents.
The care takers and other professionals need outmost support, as the result of their daily work is not too spectacular, so the burn out of the professionals is a typical problem in these kind of services.
The INV method was adapted to this situation by measuring the result of the application of pedagogical model not by the absolute development but by the slow-down of the deterioration of the clients. Professionals try to find those indicators which can indicate the compensatory effects.
