Social care

Long-term care 

Persons who cannot take care of themselves due to the age or health condition as well as children without parental care can receive housing, full care and social care in long-term social care and social rehabilitation establishments.

The following persons can receive state funded services in long-term social care and social rehabilitation establishments

  • orphans and children without parental care to the age up to 2 years and children with mental and physical problems up to 4 years of age;
  • disabled children with severe mental problems from 4 to 18 years of age;
  • majors with severe mental problems (disability groups I and II) for whom it is not necessary to reside in a specialized medical institution and whose health condition does not pose a threat on others;
  • disabled persons with visual impairment.

These services are provided by 33 state social care centres and organizations which have won their rights to provide state-financed social services in contest.

The following persons are entitled to receive municipality-funded services in long-term social care and social rehabilitation establishments:

  • orphans and children without parental care from 2 to 18 years of age;
  • persons in retirement age;
  • disabled persons if the necessary care exceeds the amount stipulated in home care or day care and social rehabilitation establishments.

In order to receive social care services a person or his/her legal representative must turn to the respective Municipal social service.

Many clients of social care centres can start independent life after a special rehabilitation course. Such transition stage is provided by halfway houses which are currently established in six social care centres.  There persons with mental problems learn the skills necessary for everyday life - how to cook, do laundry, take care of themselves - things they had never care for while living in the care centre. Persons can stay in the halfway house up to 24 months. In case of successful rehabilitation stage, persons do not longer need a long-term care service and they start a self-dependent life or move to the group home (flat).
