Residential Health Care Facilities (RHCFs)
Residential Health Care Facilities (RHCFs) are public or private residential institutions that host partially and totally dependent elderly people who can no longer live in their homes because of their poor health and autonomy.
According to national regulations, NHCFs must provide guests with:
- Residential accommodations that feel like home as much as possible, organized in such a way as to respect individuals’ need for privacy and confidentiality, while at the same time stimulating socialization among guests.
- All medical, nursing, and rehabilitation services that are necessary to prevent and treat chronic diseases and their possible exacerbation.
- Customized assistance aimed at protecting and improving levels of autonomy, maintaining personal interests, and promoting well-being.
The Day Care Centers
In some regions, such as Lombardy, the presence of an Integrated Day Care Centre (IDCC) within RHCFs is mandatory. IDCCs are semi-residential facilities for people over 60 and are partially or totally non-self-sufficient, people with chronic degenerative diseases, including dementia and Alzheimer’s, and/or disabling conditions, people who live with their families for which home care is insufficient or too difficult, and lonely people at risk of exclusion.
IDCCs are a valid resource to help elderly people live with their families, preserve their residual capacities, contain their behavioural problems, support families and lighten the burden of care, and facilitate socialization.
Functional Rehabilitation Clinics take care of patients who need rehabilitation after surgical or post-acute events in order to achieve the best possible standard of living on a physical, functional, social, and emotional level with the least possible restrictions.
Instead, Neuropsychiatric Rehabilitation Clinics are protected facilities dedicated to people suffering from psychological and emotional disorders.
Like RHCFs, Functional Rehabilitation and Neuropsychiatric Clinics are facilities that provide guests with 24/7 medical and health care and a full hotel service.
